For many, Newport is tourist destination, sporting two lighthouses, a lively Bayfront district lined with shops and restaurants, and miles of rugged, majestic shoreline. For others, it is a fishing port, home to the most productive fishing fleet on the Oregon coast and a thriving working waterfront. But to marine scientists from Oregon State University, […]

In 2010, Advanced Research completed a report for the Oregon Wave Energy Trust on Wave Energy Infrastructure Assessment for Oregon. I write this blog to express my thoughts on the use of the Oregon territorial sea for wave energy activities. Oregon is well positioned to serve the state and the nation in the responsible consideration […]

Our company recently completed a wave energy infrastructure assessment for Oregon. In our investigation we spoke with wave energy developers in Scotland, Ireland, England, Norway, Canada and the US states of Oregon and New Jersey. We also met with port authorities and infrastructure providers on the Oregon coast in Coos Bay, Reedsport, Newport, Tillamook, and Portland. As a result of […]

Oregon is one of many ocean-based economies actively exploring the tremendous potential for tapping the energy of waves to generate electricity for its energy needs.  And Oregon in many ways is a step ahead of others in exploring marine renewable energy, for it is fearlessly taking steps to address the various issues associated with such […]

For wave energy developers coming to Oregon and for local suppliers in the wave energy field, Advanced Research can provide a broad range of local support services. These include a full suite of services from ocean deployment to recovery of wave energy devices.

Oregon Wave Energy Trust recently awarded Advanced Research Corporation – an expert in the areas of marine studies and applications, including renewable energy technology and ocean observation – a contract to conduct a coastal wave energy infrastructure assessment.
