Pacific Regional Institute for Marine Energy Discovery

First of a kind marine energy projects for a one of a kind coastline

Territory acknowledgment

We acknowledge and respect the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose traditional territory the university stands and the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.


It is the mission of PRIMED to accelerate the development and adoption of marine renewable energy technologies, including wind, wave, and tidal solutions. This is achieved by working with both communities and the private sector in order to identify the resources, assess the technology, and weigh the economics.

Wind monitoring, climate assessment, turbine simulations, blade design, and fatigue analysis

Wave resource assessment, wave energy converter (WEC) device simulations, and power take-off (PTO) optimization

Tidal resource assessment, tidal energy converter (TEC) device simulation, blade design, and fatigue analysis 

Energy system modelling of micro-grid and grid-connected communities, design and optimization of hybrid renewable energy systems, and economic and feasibility assessments
