The Hawai‘i Wave Energy Test Site (WETS), the United States’ first grid-connected test site of this kind, will be completed by the US Navy in mid-2015. The Hawai‘i Natural Energy Institute (HNEI) is providing key research support to this national effort in the form of environmental monitoring, independent wave energy conversion (WEC) device power performance and durability analysis, and critical marine logistical support.
