Society’s need for ocean-derived food, materials, energy, and knowledge is kickstarting the next-generation maritime or “blue” technologies.

Industries like ocean observation are moving further offshore to take advantage of and capture data across the vast scale of the ocean. This requires access to consistent, renewable power untethered to land-based power grids. The Powering the Blue Economy™- Global initiative seeks to understand the power requirements of emerging coastal and maritime markets and encourage international collaboration on the advancement of technologies that could integrate ocean renewable energy to relieve these power constraints and enable sustainable growth of the global blue economy.
