Marine Renewable Energy


Interest in marine renewable energy has steadily increased in the Pacific Northwest in the past decade. The Oregon Wave Energy Trust funds research projects and infrastructure studies needed to encourage considered development. The National Northwest Marine Renewable Energy Center, housed at OSU and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy is a collaborative effort between OSU and the University of Washington to research and develop energy from waves and tidal flow.

The NNMREC Administrative Collection houses records such as meeting minutes and progress reports.

The NNMREC Publications Collection houses reports, theses, dissertations, and presentations generated by people affiliated with the Center.

The Oregon Wave Energy Trust collection contains OWET reports. These are also available on the OWET web site.
