Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC) Overview

The Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC) is a partnership between the University of Washington, Oregon State University, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.


Our mission is to facilitate commercialization of marine energy technology, inform regulatory and policy decisions, and close key gaps in scientific understanding with a focus on student growth and development.


We work closely with a variety of stakeholders, including marine energy device developers, community members, ocean users, federal and state regulators, and government officials to conduct research on wave, tidal, in-river energy, and off-shore wind technologies.


NNMREC serves as an umbrella organization for marine renewable energy research and development on all three campuses, while the Pacific Marine Energy Center (PMEC) serves as an umbrella organization for all laboratory and field test facilities.
