Marine Energy Technologies Lead, Sandia National Laboratories, United States

Vincent Neary

Vincent Neary has spent the last fifteen years working on a wide-range of topics advancing marine renewable energy, including modeling and measuring tidal and wave environments for resource characterization and assessment, experimental testing and numerical modeling of marine energy conversion technologies, and developing open-source reference technologies, like Sandia’s MHKF1 reference tidal turbine, to benchmark techno-economic performance.

His recent work is focused on tidal and wave energy resource characterization and classification to support regional energy planning, project development and type-certification. Vincent is a professional engineer and a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) recognized for the breadth of his contributions to research, teaching, and practice in fluid mechanics and hydraulic engineering. He serves as a subject matter expert developing industry standards as a member of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), Task Committee 114, Advisory Group 2.
