PRIMRE

The Portal and Repository for Information on Marine Renewable Energy

MRE BasicsDatabasesMRE Essentials

The movement of water in the world’s oceans creates a vast store of kinetic energy. Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) can be harnessed to generate electricity to power homes, transport and industries. MRE encompasses both wave power — power from the movement of surface waves, tidal power — power from the kinetic energy of large bodies of moving water, and ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) — power from the heat differential of different thermal layers within a body of water.

PRIMRE provides broad access to information on engineering and technologies, resource characterization, device performance, and environmental effects of Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) projects. PRIMRE facilitates the commercial development of the MRE industry by increasing the accessibility and discoverability of this information, integrating the databases and information portals found on this site, and developing standards and guidelines. Providing consistent, easy access to information can help reduce duplication of effort and to enable the MRE community to build upon the successes of others to innovate and advance the adoption of MRE technologies.
