Calwave: Converting waves into electricity and clean water

description

A technology to convert ocean waves into electricity and freshwater

The Problem

The world needs energy and wave motion - a huge, predictable, and consistent resource that is more energy dense than other renewables - is underused.

The Solution

CalWave is developing a Wave Energy Converter (WEC) that absorbs wave motion and converts it into usable energy. Calwave is capable of operating at high efficiency while being semi-submerged underwater. This unique capability works in storm conditions and results in no visual pollution or collision danger at the surface.
