Webinar #3 in DOE MHK Webinar Series

September 14, 2011



Emerging marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) technologies convert wave, tidal, ocean current, river in-stream, and ocean thermal energy into electricity. These technologies have potential to serve as low-carbon energy sources for many regions of the United States. In order to ensure the responsible deployment of these technologies as they are developed, a number of different agencies, federal research institutions, and universities are working to research the potential environmental impacts of MHK technologies. The Department of Energy (DOE) and other federal agencies involved in reviewing, permitting, and regulating MHK devices are working to coordinate and collaborate on MHK environmental research, as well as disseminate resulting products to other labs, federal agencies, industry, and interested stakeholders. This webinar series aims to increase awareness of current research efforts. The September 14 webinar focused on developing methodologies for monitoring MHK devices post-deployment, including monitoring framework development and the use of passive and active acoustics to monitor aquatic animal behavior around MHK devices. The webinar also provided insights into how these monitoring techniques may be used to develop mitigation measures in the future if needed.
