The Portal and Repository for Information on Marine Renewable Energy

MRE BasicsSignature ProjectsKnowledge HubsSTEMContributing to PRIMRE

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.

Offshore renewable energy is a rapidly expanding sector. While offshore wind is quickly growing in capacity and size, wave and tidal energy technologies are now approaching the commercial stage. As components get larger and heavier, installing and maintaining such systems in highly energetic sites entails significant logistical challenges. Within the scope of the MaRINET2 project, WavEC Offshore Renewables is organizing a short course entitled “Installation and O&M of Offshore Renewable Energy systems”. The two-day course will introduce the theory and basics of marine operation planning, and present the state-of-the-art on the installation and maintenance of wave, tidal and floating wind energy projects, sharing insights from industry experts and technology front-runners.

The Marine Energy (ME) Data Pipeline team led by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is developing a data ingestion pipeline to read, process, and convert raw instrument data to standard formats. As part of this project, PNNL has developed an initial baseline set of data standards and would like to socialize the data standards with the ME community. The data standards document is available at https://github.com/ME-Data-Pipeline-Software/data_standards. PRIMRE is hosting two webinars for the ME Data Pipeline team to introduce the development of the new ME data pipeline. Register for the first webinar, "Marine Energy Data Standards Webinar", on April 20, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. PDT: https://pnnl.zoomgov.com/meeting/register/vJItceutqj8oGAAhQMxyBSprCbrLeS9fPwU.

Join the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), and National Energy Education Development (NEED), the Hydropower Foundation and the ​U.S. Department of Energy's Water Power Technologies Office ​as they take participants on a deeper dive through the educational resources housed on the STEM for Hydropower Portal. As a participant, you will receive a sneak peak of the outline and ideas behind upcoming hydropower curricula and even provide feedback to help develop it further. From learning about existing high school- and undergraduate-level resources to discussing the increasing need for additional technical materials for graduate students, this is a tremendous opportunity for individuals in the hydropower industry, academia, and students to speak about educational resources that will mold the workforce of tomorrow.

Online/Virtual Conference
Since the second annual ISOPE-92 San Francisco, the annual ISOPE Conferences have been held with the world’s largest technical program of its kind with peer-reviewed papers (average 320-750 papers). Since ISOPE-2002 Kyushu, ISOPE-2007 Lisbon, ISOPE-2010 Beijing, and ISOPE-2015 Kona Hawaii continuously broke the attendance record of the previous ISOPE conference: ISOPE has held the technical program of 148-188 opening and technical sessions with 650-950 peer-reviewed papers from 49-54 countries in the Conference Proceedings. Conference papers are indexed to Web of Science, SCOPUS, Engineering Index, Compendex, Chemical Abstracts and more.
