NREL Facilities Accelerate Marine Energy Technology Development

Research output: NRELPoster


Once marine energy device developers have a theoretical design in mind, it's time to transform that idea into a commercially ready device. And for that, they can turn to experts at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). NREL's marine energy researchers have extensive experience moving technology ideas from prototype manufacturing through laboratory and field validation. The lab's facilities cover five phases of the validation life cycle to ensure marine energy technologies can survive harsh open-water environments. From prototype fabrication to grid integration at all scales, NREL offers end-to-end marine energy device design and validation capabilities.
