Clean energy @ low cost l.jpg

Clean Energy @ Low Cost

  • Electricity Demand

    • Double by 2020 worldwide

  • Solution

    • Low cost energy from ocean waves

    • Patented technology

“ It has been estimated that if less than 0.1% of the renewable energy available within the oceans could be converted into electricity it would satisfy the present world demand for energy more than five times over“
