Cape Cod Technology Council: John Miller gave a rousing talk at the First Friday Speaker Series hosted by the Cape Cod Technology Council. There were over 50 in attendance to network and share stories and provide valuable business feedback. Representatives from tech companies, WHOI, Cape Cod Community College and the Cape Cod Commission were present as well.
The Northeastern Regional Association of Coastal Ocean Observation Systems is going to host and post the data that will be generated from the Bourne Tidal Test Site. This data will be available to professionals, students, and the public on the NERACOOS web site that already hosts data coming from many sources in New England waters. "It's a perfect way for us to get the help we needed to provide the current speed, underwater video and power potential data to teachers, students and others who are developing turbines for similar sites", said Maggie Merrill, MRECo's Communication and Education Outreach Manager.
