Ocean Observation Prize

Water Power Technologies Office is developing a prize competition called the Powering the Blue Economy: Ocean Observing Prize (Ocean Obs Prize). This prize seeks new ideas and new technologies to reduce energy limitations for ocean observing, by extending range or duration of observations, reducing operational costs, or enabling entirely new data streams that will lead to better understanding of the ocean environment. The prize is a core element of the Powering the Blue Economy Initiative. PNNL will collaborate directly with NREL and WPTO to provide technical expertise to design, support, and execute the prize.
