SI44A:
Ocean Renewable Energy and Synergies with Ocean Technologies III Posters

Session ID#: 92991

Session Description:
Ocean renewable energy - harvesting power from waves, tides, ocean currents, or offshore winds is beginning to contribute low carbon power throughout the world.  Simultaneously, interest in further exploration and use of the ocean is growing, requiring deployments and data collection across a range of ocean observing sensors and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). There is potential for ocean renewable energy deployment to support extensive ocean observation missions, with renewable energy provided at sea, providing greater measurement and modeling capabilities for developing energy harvest and investigations at sea.  In developing the Blue Economy, the synergy between ocean energy, observations, and numerical modeling becomes significant.

 

This session seeks to address information needs, modeling and measurement capabilities that foster synergy of ocean renewable energy development, expanded ocean observations, and advancement of modeling techniques, including:

  • Measurement of ocean energy resources;
  • Modeling ocean energy resources and fluid-structure interactions of devices at various scales;
  • Characterizing environmental forces/risks on ocean energy devices
  • Measurement and modeling of environmental interactions of ocean energy devices;
  • Optimizing the location (macro-siting) and configuration (micro-siting) of ocean energy farms to maximize the energy output
  • Understanding environmental risks of ocean energy development and increased ocean observation missions;
  • Matching power at sea from ocean renewables to suitable ocean observation and AUV recharge needs; and
  • Potential for co-design of ocean renewable energy devices with end uses including ocean observations, AUV recharge, and also offshore aquaculture, desalination, mining of critical minerals from seawater, and extracting hydrogen from seawater for energy storage.
