Waves are energy reservoirs, more predictable and consistent than solar and wind, that will help to accelerate and accomplish the global energy transition.
Neowave is a wave energy converter (WEC) conceived in Covid-19 quarantine, designed from basic components and simple processes, intended to have an optimal scalability and to be accessible in different countries.
Neowave, the new WEC
- TRL 3 currently: Tank scale testing.
- Bidirectional generation.
- Dismountable and stackable design option for storage and transport.
- Reduced, basics, standards, industrialized and commercial components.
- No gears or oils for power transmission.
- Remotely operated systems (ROS) designed for maintenance and control.
- Recyclable and reusable materials.
- No CO₂ emissions during operation.
- No oils for power transmission that can drain.
- Moorings like home for some marine species.
- Bio-based lubricant residues as food for small fishes.
- Design variation for floating plastic recollection.
