The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is offering up to $13 million in funding to develop and test advanced components and technologies to boost the performance of marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) energy systems.

The DOE plans to select up to 10 awards aimed at developing advanced controls, power systems and device structures specifically for MHK applications, which harness energy from waves, tides or currents.

Through the new funding opportunity, the DOE says it intends to support projects that increase the power-to-weight ratio of MHK devices or improve system reliability through investment in three component technologies.
