Finding Funding for Marine Energy-Powered Devices That Can Aid in National Security and Defense

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Room Number: Senate
Day: 3/14/2024

Marine energy can provide more than just traditional power production to be fed into the electrical grid. The technology can also be applied “at-sea” to power ocean monitoring devices, to charge underwater autonomous vehicles (UAVs) used for national security, and to provide a localized power source after natural disasters.

What’s more, there’s federal funding available for development and deployment of technologies designed for these applications.

Learn about specific existing funding and programs that can help incentivize technology developers looking to develop and deploy devices for these defense-, security-, and disaster relief-related applications of water power.
