U.S. DOE awards $25M To Wave Power Research Projects
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will provide $25M in funding to support increased research and development of wave energy technologies.

“PacWave in Oregon is at the forefront of wave energy, thanks in large part to the visionary researchers at Oregon State University. This federal investment of $25 million will allow innovative technologies from across the country, including one from Portland State University, to be tested right here in Oregon, bringing us closer to realizing the potential of this tremendous resource,” U.S. Representative Suzanne Bonamici claimed.

“I’ve long been a champion for wave energy because it can play an important part in our transition to a clean energy economy. The award Secretary Granholm announced today is a milestone in the effort to make wave energy a reality.”

“Wave energy promises to be an important component of our clean energy future and I’m proud to represent businesses like Dehlsen Associates, which has a long history of innovative solutions to the renewable energy challenges we face,” U.S. Representative Salud Carbajal concluded.
