EA-1917: Draft Environmental Assessment

Wave Energy Test Facility Project, Newport, OR

This EA evaluates Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC) at Oregon State  University's proposal to use federal funding from DOE to support the design, construction, and operation of their Wave Energy Test Project located off the coast of Newport, Oregon. DOE is also proposing to provide federal funding to Northwest Energy Innovations to support a controlled open-sea deployment and test of their WET-NZ WEC device, which would be the first wave energy devise tested at the NNMREC’s Project facilities.
