    NAVFAC EXWC hosts Wave Energy Test Site blessing ceremony

    MARINE CORPS BASE HAWAII- Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Mr. Joseph Bryan speaks at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC) Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) blessing ceremony, July 26. The event signified the opening of deep water berths in the WETS, grid-connected infrastructure being used to accelerate the evolution of wave energy conversion (WEC) device technologies and allow the Navy and Marine Corps to evaluate the feasibility of various WEC configurations. "So like most of what we do in the Navy, WETS is the product of a partnership, and this one is between the Department of the Navy, the Navy and Marine Corps, private sector developers, Department of Energy and the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, an organization with a more than 40 year history on alternative energy," said guest speaker, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy), Mr. Joseph M. Bryan. "Because when it comes to energy, we know that you can't just focus on today's headlines, that's a mistake, you have to keep your eyes on the horizon, on the next wave, planning for the future."
