A Coast Guard report confirms a “test wave energy structure” was deployed about a kilometre off shore near Point Grey in February. The fixture is a prototype of a wave-energy generator — something that converts the physical energy of waves into electricity, according to entrepreneur Charles Haynes, who ...
George Kirby, president and CEO of New Jersey-based OPT, described ocean wave energy as the most predictable of renewable energies, considering its persistent ability to provide power anywhere offshore via wind-driven wave activity. To overcome the seasonal drawback of having little or no wave ...

A £42m wave energy project off the Cornish coast has yet to produce any electricity despite being up and running for eight years. Wave Hub, an undersea "socket" installed to test wave energy machines, has hosted just one device since 2010. But it was not connected to the shore and one of the project's ...
BENGALURU: A Bengaluru-based former Captain with the Merchant Navy and an innovator has designed a device to harness energy from oceanic waves at a reasonable price.Captain D C Sekhar's device converts energy from waves into electricity. He started to build a prototype in December 2016, and a ...
Seabased's wave energy converters rely on the kinetic motion of the ocean to move buoys moored to linear generators on the sea floor, thus generating electricity. Seabased was founded in 2001 and has since generated energy using its devices at the Sotenas Wave Energy Plant off Sweden's west coast.
A $20 million plan to set Albany up as a wave energy hub is looming as an expensive dud, with the WA Nationals accusing the State Government of wasting taxpayers' money on a frolic. Warren-Blackwood Nationals MP Terry Redman yesterday moved a motion in State Parliament to denounce the Albany ...

A project in Scotland to develop a system that converts wave movement into electricity has been awarded £2.5m in funding by Wave Energy Scotland (WES). The magnetic gear project is led by Banchory-based Ecosse Subsea Systems in collaboration with Bathwick Electrical Design Ltd, Supply Design Ltd ...
Mr Love today called on the State Government to divert more than $15 million funding for a wave energy plant at Albany to Kalbarri. He said while there was uncertainty surrounding connection of the Albany wave project to the South West energy grid, it made sense to reallocate the State Government ...
Behind the scenes, Oregon's wave energy ambitions got a boost just before the Legislature brought its short 2018 session to a fast close this past weekend. It came in the form of $3 million, tucked into a sprawling spending bill, that will help fund a test center off the coast at Newport that's being counted on ...
The Scottish Government's minister for business, innovation and energy, Paul Wheelhouse, said: “Sustained funding from the Scottish Government has allowed Wave Energy Scotland to provide opportunities for Scottish companies such as Ecosse Subsea Systems and Supply Design to participate in this ...
An innovative project in Scotland to develop a system that converts wave movement into electricity has been awarded £2.5m by Wave Energy Scotland (WES). The magnetic gear project is led by Banchory-based Ecosse Subsea Systems in collaboration with Bathwick Electrical Design Ltd, Supply Design ...
Energy from ocean waves? Yes, the Philippines will harness energy from ocean to provide energy for hybrid trimaran cargo vessels. At the same time, the project is expected to improve the country's maritime industry: It will have a modern design and will be environment-friendly, safe and unsinkable.
Wello Oy, based in Finland, has signed a contract with Chinese conglomerate CIMC Offshore Engineering Institute (CIMC OEI) to begin “a joint research phase for defining an optimized Penguin Wave Energy Converter (WEC) design for Chinese waters.” CIMC OEI is located in Yanti, Shandong province, ...
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said wave and tidal energy has taken "major steps forward" despite a £10m prize for innovation never being awarded. The Saltire Prize was launched by Alex Salmond in 2008 to push marine energy towards commercial success. A decade later, two major competitors ...
The US Department of Energy is out with an interesting piece on wave energy that puts a new twist on the “American Energy Dominance” theme. In a recent interview, the folks over at the agency's Water Power Technologies Office teased out a revelation that the waves off the Oregon coast have about ...
The Victoria-based company, AMOG, said on Monday that it had secured the grant through the EU's European Regional Development Fund – to install a scaled-down version of its Wave Energy Converter (WEC) device at the University of Exeter's 'nursery' test site, called FaBTest. The company said that ...
The marine renewables market is rapidly expanding, with the potential of marine energy meeting a significant percentage of the global energy demand. The United States has a substantial wave energy resource, which could deliver up to 15 percent of its annual electricity demand, which would represent a ...

Atmocean has a promising solution for the future of clean, affordable water and environmental sustainability. Among the many alternative energy sources available, Atmocean has settled on wave energy as a tool for converting ocean water into fresh water and opening up new coastal agriculture ...
Wave Energy Scotland (WES), a subsidiary of Highlands and Island Enterprise (HIE), has awarded about US$3.5 million to a magnetic gear project being led by Aberdeenshire, Scotland-based Ecosse Subsea Systems (Ecosse). According to an announcement from HIE, WES is in the final stage of its ...
A wave energy farm planned off Albany's coast has hit a major snag, with the State Government unable to confirm how the energy generated will connect to the power grid. As part of a Labor election commitment, $15.75 million was announced to fund a wave energy project at Sandpatch, able to produce ...
The project has now been selected by Wave Energy Scotland (WES) for the final stage of its Power Take Off (PTO) programme, aimed at supporting wave power innovations. The magnetic gear project is led by ESS in collaboration with Bathwick Electrical Design, Supply Design and Pure Marine Gen.
James Fisher Marine Services announced it had signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to cooperate with Carnegie Clean Energy Limited on deployment of its CETO 6 wave energy technology. James Fisher says it will “help progress geotechnical, mooring and foundation techniques, processes ...
