Marine and Hydrokinetic Data Repository


The Marine and Hydrokinetic Data Repository (MHKDR) is the submission point for all data collected using funds from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Water Power Technologies Office. More Information.

The goals of the MHKDR

  • Enable an easy data upload process to help with reporting requirements
  • Provide a curation process to allow internal data experts to help evaluate the quality of the data
  • Keep secure data secure (based on moratorium dates)
  • Securely share data with DOE and partner laboratories
  • Openly share data with the public

Submit data

The MHKDR has been established to securely house data based on individual timelines, some of which have identified a specific release date. Please note:

  1. All data will eventually be made available to the public.
  2. Data not intended for eventual public release should not be uploaded to the MHKDR.

You must create an OpenEI account or login to submit data.

If you have questions about this data submission process, please contact MHKDR Help.

What's new?

Smarter Submissions
The MHKDR will now detect any dates present in the names of uploaded files and use them to auto-populate the appropriate date fields in the submission form. The date fields can still be used to manually specify any date, but our hope is that it's one less thing to fill out when submitting!

Save Submissions "In Progress"
The MHKDR team is proud to bring you a refined submissions process. You may now save a submission in progress as often as you like, return later to work on it at your convenience, and submit whenever it's ready.
