Our inspiration…

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.
