PRIMRE

The Portal and Repository for Information on Marine Renewable Energy

MRE BasicsSignature ProjectsKnowledge HubsSTEM

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.

On Jan. 14, 2021, Sandia National Laboratories presented the development of a web-based tool to streamline marine energy system technology design and certification following the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 62600-2 technical specification requirements. The tool will include a host of functions that were demonstrated in a case study for the reference model 3 (RM3) point absorber designed for the PACWAVE test site located off the Oregon Coast, including: site mapping, data search to identify and download the best available information for the project site, data quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) checks, and a variety of univariate and bivariate statistical methods for estimating the extreme load conditions, e.g., the 50-year return period significant wave height that characterizes the extreme wave load condition.

The MHK Environmental Toolkit for Permitting and Licensing aims to increase regulators’ and developers’ understanding of marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) projects and their potential environmental effects to reduce the time and costs required to permit and develop MHK projects. The project team, led by Kearns & West, will host a series of workshops and other engagement opportunities in February and March to demonstrate the toolkit, gather feedback, and share experts’ understanding of potential impacts and the state of known/unknown science for MHK projects. Members of the marine energy community are invited to join and offer feedback on the development of the toolkit. Please register to attend a general webinar, the Q&A session, and/or schedule a 15–30 minute timeslot to meet one-on-one during the project team’s office hours.

Join NREL, Sandia, and PNNL on February 10th at 12 p.m. ET to learn about new developments in the Marine and Hydrokinetic Toolkit (MHKiT), an open-source software package developed in Python and Matlab that includes modules for ingesting, quality controlling, processing, visualizing, and managing marine energy data. The February 10th webinar will focus on MHKiT-Python, and will include demonstrations in Python. The February 18th webinar will focus on MHKiT-Matlab, and include Matlab demonstrations. Register now to learn about MHKiT functionality for ingesting modeled and observational data, applying quality control checks to the data, performing resource and power performance assessments, and characterizing mechanical loads. It is recommended that webinar attendees preinstall MHKiT and its dependencies by following the instructions on the installation page so they can follow along and try demonstrated functionality during the webinar.
