Title: Florida Atlantic University-Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center: Cooperative Research and Development Final Report, CRADA Number CRD-10-377

Abstract

Florida Atlantic University's Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center (SNMREC) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) will collaborate to advance research and development (R&D) of marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) renewable energy technology, specifically renewable energy captured from oceanic currents such as the Florida Current. SNMREC is endeavoring to establish infrastructure and capabilities that will form the base of a marine energy technology testing center focused on energy production from open-ocean currents and ocean thermal resources. As part of this effort, SNMREC is also aiming to create technology development tools and an experimental hydrokinetic device to operate in the Florida Current. NWTC has experience in developing testing infrastructure and modeling tools. SNMREC has expertise in ocean engineering and operations, a large inventory of ocean instrumentation, and ready access to the ocean. NWTC and SNMREC will therefore work together on numerical modeling, technology design review and testing, the development of standardized MHK instrumentation, field testing, establishing testing protocols, and moving the SNMREC testing capability through A2LA accreditation.
