As part of the agreement, the company has initiated a three-month, in-depth feasibility study in the U.S. and key regions across the globe.

The study explores the best-proposed implementation sites for commercial installations, and reviews 77 sites in detail on the U.S. coastline, in terms of wave availability and compatible marine structures, with encouraging results, while also proposing a five- and a ten-year roadmap for wave energy commercialization.

“Wave energy can power communities with clean, reliable energy and be a strong force in combating climate change,” said Eco Wave Power Founder and CEO Inna Braverman. “We are thrilled to help provide in depth analysis about wave energy to an industry leader that is  exploring many avenues for clean energy.”

A few months ago, Eco Wave Power announced that its EWP-EDF One power station in Jaffa Port had been officially connected to the grid, providing power from wave energy to Israel’s national energy grid for the first time.

The company also has a pilot station located at AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles. Currently on static display, the station is set to be installed in the coming months and will be the first onshore wave energy pilot station in the U.S.

California Governor Gavin Newsom recently signed new legislation, Senate Bill 605, that directs the California Energy Commission to evaluate the feasibility of wave and tidal energy in California, including the costs and benefits of implementing the technology across the state’s coastline. In New Jersey, similar legislation is awaiting consideration from the New Jersey State Senate Environment & Energy Committee.
