Data collection buoys are essential for gathering information about the ocean and climate, but these devices can also be unreliable when their batteries die and turn into ocean debris.    Students at the UNH College of Engineering & Physical Sciences (CEPS) and the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics are collaborating to tackle this problem with Drift-RMT, a renewable ocean data collection device that uses wave motion for self-sustaining power.    The Drift-RMT team is one of six competing for a $15,000 prize and an opportunity to advance their business idea at this year’s Paul J. Holloway Prize Competition. For the Drift-RMT team, the Holloway Competition is the first part of a busy May ending at the Marine Energy Collegiate Competition (MECC) in Portland, Oregon.    The...
