Stand 1.329 - Dutch Marine Energy Centre
The company Énergies des Vagues Et Renouvelables has completed the proof of concept studies for a novel wave energy converter, that exploits wave undulations to drive the continuous
motion of an electrical generator.
Worldwide patented innovative features include:
• a novel design of the hull, allowing it to oscillate in response to wave motion,
• a direct-drive electromechanical system that transforms the hull oscillations into electricity,
• a tuning system that allows the converter to adapt its oscillations to ever-changing sea states.
The on-going studies and tests are intended to demonstrate the high performance level of this
new concept, and its ability to provide clean energy at low cost
