The €1.5 million expected to be raised in 2024 will be instrumental in further demonstrating and commercializing the wave energy technology, Wavepiston said.

Specifically, these funds will be allocated towards demonstrating time-series data from the full-scale system, continuing technology development and developing commercial pilot wave farms.

This is anticipated to pave the way for strategic partnerships in 2025 with investors and partners possessing a broad industry network and invaluable scaling experience within the offshore and renewables sectors.

According to the company, pre-registered investors have already committed more than €438,000 on the Seedrs platform.

Wavepiston’s wave energy system consists of energy collectors placed in the ocean which produce pressurized seawater which is transported to the shore where power generation and reverse osmosis units for desalination are located.

A month later, Wavepiston and Export Barbados (BIDC), an agency of the Barbados Government, announced they were set to explore the deployment of wave energy farms offshore Barbados.
