The passing of the Inflation Reduction Act (H.R.5376) is big news for marine energy research and development, and for the Pacific Northwest! The PNW is a hot spot for wave and tidal energy and home to many of those leading the way: C-Power, #PacWave, Pacific Marine Energy Center, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Sequim – and BioSonics!
We were excited to talk with Tom Banse of KUOW Public Radio on Tuesday – the day the bill was signed – about the benefits of the new Act, the upcoming deployment of the BioSonics Marine Life Observer alongside C-Power’s SeaRay wave energy device at the Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) in Hawaii, and the PNW’s important role in wave and tidal energy development.
BioSonics’ Marine Life Observer will be used alongside the C-Power SeaRay marine energy device, as part of the U.S. Department of Energy Water Power Technologies Office’s Triton Initiative.
BioSonics Omnidirectional Marine Life Observer is the first of its kind—providing 360 sound underwater insights using BioSonics’ unique mammal-friendly sonar.
