Bringing wave power to a cost competitive level and commercial scale

Project description

Putting wave power technology on the path to commercial availability

Ocean waves contain tremendous energy potential. A host of challenges, including the difficulty of designing a device that can withstand the tough ocean conditions, have stymied efforts to generate electricity from the sea. The EU-funded Wave Scale project is developing an innovative wave energy converter that automatically recognises the different types of ocean waves, alerting the relevant system to either raise the floaters above the water level or submerge them for protection. The device will be entirely modular and produced in units of 1 MW. Once deployed at a large scale, it promises to deliver electricity at a levelised cost of energy between EUR 50 and EUR 90.
