Posted 2020-04-03 in News

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and NOAA Announced the 11 Winners of the Powering the Blue Economy Ocean Observing Prize

The competition is designed to spur technology innovation, allow for easier and/or cheaper data collection across the 80% of the world’s oceans that remain unexplored, and contribute to the growth of the blue economy.
“The United States can harness science and technological advances to increase our understanding and effective management of the ocean environment at a level of detail and geographic scale never before possible,” said Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Daniel R Simmons. “Through innovation we can help unlock the potential of the ocean to provide both energy and water across the country.”
