Wave energy and the PacWave test facility (Midcoast Watershed Council)

March 7 @ 6:30 pm

The Oregon coast has a highly energetic wave field that persists through the calendar, and offers accessible ports and a strong maritime supply chain.  It is therefore an ideal location for testing wave energy generation devices, from small autonomous systems to large utility-scale grid connected devices. Join us on Thursday, March 7th, as Oregon State University’s Burke Hales discusses wave energy and the PacWave test facility offshore of South Beach, managed by the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.

The presentation will begin at 6:30 PM in Room 205 on the upper floor of the Newport Visual Arts Center in Nye Beach, at 777 NW Beach Drive. Refreshments will be provided. A MidCoast Watersheds Council Board meeting will follow the presentation with the following agenda: Financial report, Restoration report, Technical Team report, and Administrative Team report and action items.
