The DOE announced last week the selection of six projects for federal funding, each related to research regarding water power technologies, including both offshore marine and hydrokinetic energy. The recipients for marine and hydrokinetic energy project funding are the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (Golden, CO), the Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM) and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (Sequim, WA), each of which will be partnering with universities, other laboratories, and in some cases private industry.
