DE-FOA-0001103: Notice of Intent to Issue DE-FOA-0001098: Marine and Hydrokinetic (MHK) Research and Development University Consortium

This anticipated FOA is to support a university consortium to leverage existing in-situ Research and Development (R&D) expertise to advance U.S. Marine and Hydrokinetic (MHK) technology, while developing intellectual capital for a globally-competitive workforce.  The individual consortium-defined R&D activities pursued in the overall university consortium project will address strategic opportunities in DOE’s MHK technology development portfolio.

     Logistics development for operations and maintenance (O&M) of devices and arrays in energetic marine environments.

     Development and validation of efficient high-fidelity resource characterization and/or modeling techniques.

     Development and techno-economic studies of devices for distributed applications.

     Component technology development necessary for enabling arrays: e.g. moorings and foundations, transmission, and other offshore grid components.

     Array performance testing and evaluation.

     In-water testing and evaluation of new, cost-effective environmental monitoring techniques and instrumentation in energetic marine environments.
