TEAMER picks 16 strong

The U.S. Testing Expertise and Access to Marine Energy Research (TEAMER) program has selected 16 marine energy technology developers for testing and technical support.

The developers and researchers, selected in the first Request for Technical Support (RFTS) launched earlier in 2020, will be granted access to U.S.-based test facilities and technical expertise.

The selections, announced by the TEAMER network director, the Pacific Ocean Energy Trust (POET), are as follows:

CalWave Power Technologies – CalWave Torque Spring Optimization, testing at Sandia National Laboratories

CalWave Power Technologies – xWave Higher Order Dynamics and Autonomous Control Testing, testing at University of Maine

Current Kinetics – Dynamometer testing of a novel Seawater Lubricated and Cooled MHK Turbine Generator, testing at Florida Atlantic University

Dehlsen Associates – Additional Degree of Freedom for WEC, testing at Oregon State University’s Wallace Energy Systems & Renewables Facility (WESRF)

Backed by the US Department of Energy, the TEAMER program is open to applicants seeking technology support with modeling and analysis, laboratory and bench tests, as well as tank, flume, tunnel, and basin tests.

The program is expected to launch three to four annual open funding calls over the course of three years, and distribute approximately $13 million.
