Resolute Marine Energy (RME) is developing technologies that produce clean energy from ocean waves. Since the company’s founding in 2007, RME has received generous research and development funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Interior – Bureau of Reclamation and test program support from organizations including the University of North Carolina – Coastal Studies Institute and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

RME’s goal is to build and sell smaller-scale, wave-driven power solutions (1-50kW) utilized in commercial applications including open-ocean aquaculture, seawater desalination and ocean observation systems. Our longer-term goal is to develop WEC technologies that are appropriate for utility-scale, grid-connected electricity generation.

RME is committed to uphold the highest standards of ocean stewardship and to deliver triple-bottom-line returns to stakeholders in terms of measurable financial, social and environmental benefits.
