March 22 - August 25, 2023

Phase I is now closed. View the Results tab for Phase I Winners!

In Phase I, the prize engaged interdisciplinary teams to develop novel DEEC-Tec concepts and methodologies. This phase was intended to familiarize participants with DEEC-Tec, ocean wave energy, and how to integrate these two applications to find new potential solutions. Teams created an initial concept, submitted a brief technical narrative representing their idea and the innovation process that led them to the proposed solution, and completed a simplified Phase I version of a Technology Performance Level assessment to represent the technoeconomic performance level of the concept. Awards were intended to support work leading up to Phase II.

Up to 20 teams could each win $15,000 in cash awards.
