The Pacific Marine Energy Center (PMEC) facilitates the development of marine energy technologies via research, education, and outreach across the partner institutions: the University of Washington (UW), Oregon State University (OSU), and University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).
Toward the goal of accelerating responsible development of renewable energy, PMEC faculty and students investigate technical, environmental, and social dimensions of ocean energy technologies, performing research that fills knowledge gaps. Through this research, students are becoming industry pioneers, educating themselves in these promising new fields. PMEC itself serves as a neutral voice of science and engineering to inform the public and decision-makers about the effects and capabilities of marine energy technologies.
