Date: October 07, 2013 at 19:40 GMT

Abstract: The development of the hydrokinetic renewable energy industry is in its early stage. It is important to have well-defined standards and technical specifications to maintain the stability of the industry. The United States has established a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) through the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).  

The TAG is working with all facets of the industry to support the development of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards and specifications. This paper will highlight the participation from individuals, industries, and government entities.
