Eco Wave Power said it would recognize Meridian Energy Australia – a subsidiary of one of Australasia’s largest renewable energy generators Meridian Energy Limited – as a supporting partner, lead the investigation into the application of wave energy in Australia, and identify opportunities for the application of the Eco Wave Power Background IP.

Our current generation assets are wind and hydro, so by entering this collaboration we are excited to investigate the potential of wave energy in Australia. We believe that renewable energy is the only way forward and are always looking at ways to diversify and grow our renewable energy portfolio in Australia“.

Meridian is demonstrating significant leadership by only generating electricity from renewable energy sources. We believe that this collaboration with Meridian, a global leader in renewable energy, is another significant step in the commercialization of wave energy”.
