CalWave Wave Energy Converter
by CalWave Power Technologies Inc.

Description

Coastal and island communities are often dependent on diesel generators for power, which are a polluting and inefficient energy source. CalWave's patent-pending Wave Energy Converter (WEC) aims to address this challenge by harnessing the vastly available, predictable and stable energy from waves to provide communities with reliable, affordable and sustainable electricity and freshwater. The high performing WEC operates fully submerged, allowing it to survive stormy seas without visual impact. CalWave’s mission is to install 500 units of baseload ocean wave power by 2030 for island communities. By harnessing the power of the ocean, wave energy can provide affordable, predictable and sustainable energy for communities across the world.
