Renewable Energy Discovery (REDi) Island

Ready to help advance water power? Explore the Renewable Energy Discovery (REDi) Island with the U.S. Department of Energy Water Power Technologies Office and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Fly through our interactive, educational 3D animation of a virtual renewable energy-powered island that—with help from the next generation of water power scientists—could soon become reality. Get inspired by diverse marine, hydropower, and river-based energy technologies, which could energize whole communities, power microgrids and offshore work, and turn salt water into fresh drinking water, all with clean, reliable, renewable energy from moving waters.
