About Oregon Wave Energy Trust
Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET) - with members from fishing and environmental groups, industry and government - is a nonprofit public-private partnership funded by the Oregon Innovation Council in 2007. Its mission is to serve as a connector for all stakeholders involved in wave energy project development - from research and development to early stage community engagement and final deployment and energy generation - positioning Oregon as the North America leader in this nascent industry and delivering its full economic and environmental potential for the state. OWET's goal is to have ocean wave energy producing 500 megawatts of power by 2025.
