BladeRunner is pleased to announce another major milestone! The Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO) has selected BladeRunner along with six other companies for their Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.
BladeRunner will lead a 9 month grant focusing on how Marine Hydrokinetic (MHK) technologies like BladeRunner can become the grid-forming backbone of remote microgrids including the use of pumped hydro storage as a stabilization solution.
BladeRunner Energy is honored to be supported in this proposal by some of the world’s most reputable partners and experts in the field of MHK and remote microgrids. With the assistance of the Alaska Center for Energy and Power based at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Navigant Consulting, Sustainable Power Systems and PAX Scientific, BladeRunner Energy strives to strengthen the stance of renewable energy sources and provide energy independence to community-based microgrids.
