WaterBros heading to New Hampshire for testing over the summer

Landon and I were excited to have our WaterBros request for technical support (RFTS) accepted, which means we will be heading to UNH over the summer for wave tank testing of our Waves to Water prototype.

Global Map of Marine Energy Deployments and Test Centers

OES – Ocean Energy Systems has an excellent interactive map for looking at marine energy deployments across the globe, complete with working principles and links for more information.  It can be an addictive rabbit hole, but cool none-the-less.

Physics over Chemistry

Pretty much sums up why I’ve leaned toward physics over chemistry since high school….

WaterBros….the adventure continues!

 

We were excited to get the news that WaterBros was selected as on of ten Waves 2 Water ADAPT Stage winners.  This is the 3rd of 5 rounds of competition, and will culminate with deployments at Jennette’s Pier for testing.  We’ve benefited from the great original work done by the SAROS team and are happy that our design and modeling efforts have kept the concept moving forward.  There are some great teams in the top ten, so we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us to make it through the CREATE stage an on to the DRINK stage.

New Hydropower Research and Industry Resources

A couple of new (or revamped) portals for industry and research in hydropower have emerged over the past couple of weeks.  They look to be solid resources for marine energy specifically as well as hydropower in general.
