Due to the comprehensive tasks in this report individual chapters have been linked below for your convenience (PDF).
The UMI report establishes useful tools and effective strategies to address the technical and business issues currently facing both the utility companies and wave energy industry.
This task includes establishing a Wave Energy Utility Advisory Committee that guides and oversees efforts of the project. Committee members provide direction for areas of focus and provide feedback on project deliverables.
A comprehensive examination of the wave resource and existing wave energy conversation technologies. In addition, this task provides an estimate of potential installed megawatts, timing and locations for wave energy in Oregon’s power supply portfolio.
