The vast, clean energy potential of the world’s oceans is making waves in the U.S. Integral Consulting scientists are contributing new tools and techniques to advance ocean energy projects globally. Craig Jones, Ph.D., Grace Chang, Ph.D., Kaus Raghukumar, Ph.D., and Gene Revelas will present on these offshore technology developments during the International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) on April 28-30, 2021. Drs. Chang and Jones will also chair or moderate sessions.
Integral research and development projects presented during the conference can help developers, regulators, and stakeholders:
- Monitor, characterize, and geolocate sources of sound with NoiseSpotter™
- Analyze the seafloor using sediment profile and plan view imaging and AI
- Streamline licensing and permitting with an environmental toolkit
- Forecast wave energy production for microgrid management.
