The Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO) on behalf of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is seeking feedback from the renewable energy industry, academia, national laboratories, government agencies, and private entities about the use of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s (PNNL) Marine Sciences Laboratory (MSL) as a research, development, testing, and validation venue.
This RFI addresses the growing interest in the use of MSL facilities for renewable energy, maritime markets—as part of WPTO’s Powering the Blue Economy Initiative—and energy storage research, technology development, and testing.
Results of this RFI may be used to help DOE and PNNL prioritize MSL resources and investments.
This is solely a request for information and not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).
Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to WPTORFI@ee.doe.gov no later than August 8, 2019.
PNNL’s Marine Sciences Laboratory (MSL), located at the mouth of Sequim Bay in Washington State, is the U.S. Department of Energy’s research and development capability focused on helping the nation achieve its needs for sustainable energy, a sustaining environment, and robust security in coastal environments.
