WPTO is seeking ideas from the U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratories to inform the development of a new pilot program, the Marine Energy Laboratory Seedlings Program.

Ideas for this RFI should address WPTO’s goals, using varying amounts of funding, and help to inform how the program could establish an MHK Lab Seedling program moving forward.

The goal of the Seedling program is to encourage submission of creative and diverse concepts from the labs, including developing technologies, fostering partnerships, or conducting analysis that might address the mission critical goals identified below.
