New ARPA-E SHARKS program with UWash on cross-flow turbine arrays

The lab is excited to begin working with collaborators at U. Washington, NREL and Oberon Insights on an ARPA-E sponsored program within SHARKS (Submarine Hydrokinetic And Riverine Kilo-megawatt Systems). The goal is to generate a system of cross-flow turbines through co-design that significantly lowers the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) making hydrokinetic turbines more competitive with other renewable energy systems.
