Marine Energy State-Level Advocacy – Success Stories, Lessons Learned, and How to Grow Support

Time: 4:45 PM - 5:45 PM
Room Number: Congressional
Day: 3/14/2024

California's recent marine energy-focused bill passage in October 2023 and New Jersey’s proposed state-level marine energy legislation show a resurgence of state-led incentives for marine energy deployments and development.

A focus during 2024 for the National Hydropower Association and its Marine Energy Council is to develop model state legislation and market mechanisms that incentivize more marine energy deployments.

Join this session to better understand the recent state bill proposals, what market pull mechanisms exist in the U.S. and abroad, and learn how you can engage with your state to make sure marine energy is included in 2024.
