Powering the Blue Economy: Turning the ocean from an electricity desert into a power oasis
Wednesday, November 7
Alejandro Moreno, director of the Water Power Technologies Office at the Department of Energy, will speak at MITEI in E19-319 on November 7, 12-1 p.m.
Moreno will discuss diverse applications for marine energy, many of which fall within the Blue Economy, and how they could lead to new innovation to provide power at sea. The “Blue Economy” refers to the range of economic uses of ocean and coastal resources—such as energy, shipping, fisheries, aquaculture, and tourism. Marine energy is one growth sector within the Blue Economy that presents a significant economic, social, and environmental opportunity.
