Small-scale wave energy with Jack Pan of Ocean Motion Technologies (June Social)

Join our June Seasteading Social to discuss how small-scale ocean energy can enable big data in the blue economy.

Once a month, we will host a free, online discussion on a topic related to seasteading. This month, the topic is “Small-scale wave energy with Jack Pan of Ocean Motion Technologies.”

Ocean Motion Technologies is blazing a new path to sustainable, scalable and more efficient marine hydrokinetic energy by focusing on small-scale applications. The blue economy needs commercially successful products in small-scale energy to fuel the research and development needed to discover the generation methods and supporting technologies that will unlock scalable ocean wave energy production. Since the beginning, our team is focused on small-scale power needs at sea for scientific / maritime buoys and moorings, offshore aquaculture, and coastal security.

Jack Pan is the founder and CEO of Ocean Motion Technologies, Inc.. He is also a NPP Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Jack received his Ph.D. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO, UCSD). Prior to SIO, he worked as a consultant and team lead at JPL and led the development of satellite remote sensing projects on coastal ocean monitoring. Jack has also participated in several polar research expeditions to Antarctica and is a recipient of the Antarctica Service Medal for his instrumentation work and sampling in extreme environments. Jack is also an avid traveler and photographer.
