DOE announces marine and hydrokinetic open data effort

In an effort to improve future data management and access, DOE’s Water Power Program is establishing a Marine and Hydrokinetics (MHK) Data Repository to manage the receipt, protection, and dissemination of scientific and technical data generated by DOE-funded awards.

Capabilities of the proposed MHK Data Repository include:

  • Secure and intuitive submission process;
  • Curation and approval workflow;
  • Support for data under moratorium;
  • Keyword faceted search;
  • Central authentication (CAS);
  • Custom metadata schema;

  • External integration;

  • Multi-layered security;

  • Secure storage of sensitive data;

  • Scalability; and

  • Analytics.

DOE says that the MHK Data Repository will reduce duplication of effort and accelerate MHK innovation by allowing fewer resources to be spent on data discovery, freeing up resources for analysis, innovation, and implementation.

DOE’s MHK Technology Database moves to the Open Energy Information (OpenEI) website where the MHK community now has an interactive database to help showcase project and technology development around the world. In addition, users can learn about Hydrodynamic Testing Facilities capabilities across the US. The MHK community can share their facilities latest capabilities by creating a profile through OpenEI.

The Water Power Program has also collaborated with the International Energy Agency’s Ocean Energy Systems group to create the Tethys database, which catalogues, shares, and maps environmental research from around the world to enable sustainable development and expansion of clean, renewable ocean power.
