Ocean Energy and RegionalIntegration PerspectiveMichael HagoodRobert BreckenridgeKurt MyersIdaho NationalLaboratoryWashington State OceanEnergy Conference:Deep Water Wind and AnOcean Energy EconomyNovember, 2011Bremerton, WA
Pacific Northwest Energy CorridorOcean energy opportunities will emerge innested bi-national regional context• The Puget Sound area is engaged in acquiring “clean”energy resources, reducing dependency on oil,emissions and CO2 footprint, and helping lead inadoption of electrification of vehicles and ports• The area hosts DoD bases and major ports withprogressive energy security goals• Advancing ocean energy in the area will require asophisticated assessment of regional energy resources,including optimizing energy infrastructure investments(North-South trends; East-West trends)• Significant energy and mineral resource developmentwill occur along the PNW coastline, extending into theArctic Region• The PNW Coast will increasingly be integrated withAsian markets and investments, with significant exportsof energy and minerals from the PNW Plans exist to further develop energy infrastructure to help integrate “clean” energy supplies from NW coast and to supply Asia with N. American energy resources (modified; courtesy of Sea Breeze Power Corporation)
Regional Renewable Energy will be integrated intoGreater Regional Energy Systems Energy Storage Renewable Energy (e.g., battery) (e.g., wind, solar) Renewable Energy System Time-varyingPrimary Thermal Source (e.g., nuclear, fossil) Hybrid Energy System Grid Demand heat Steam Turbine- Generator heat Intermediate Heat Exchanger Chemical Synthesis Carbon Source Domestic (e.g., H2 or methanol) Synthetic Fuel (e.g., natural gas) fuel Auxiliary steam Heat Generation carbon
Strategic Planning is Critical in Introducing OceanEnergy Options• Identify candidate end states inthe context of being “nested”within a greater bi-nationalregional energy corridor• Identify associated requirementsand develop a set of integratedroadmaps to generate possiblepathways, i.e., for policy,technology, investment,environment, etc.• Utilize energy framework asplatform for moving up the energyvalue chain, creating industrialenterprises• Create bi-national regional Existing, Proposed, and In Existing, Proposed, andleadership groups to support Construction Transmission in Construction Oilendeavor Pipelines
