Power harnessed from hydrokinetic deep sea wave energy

“Wave energy has the potential to power over 100 million US homes, but is completely underutilised at the moment.”

— The US Department of Energy

Waves are 20-60 times more energy-dense than other forms of renewable energy such as solar or wind. They are more predictable, consistent and are consistently present all year round, day and night.

Forecasts show that ocean energy have the potential to reduce the equivalent of 1.38 gigatons of CO2.

Wave energy converters:

Anchored miles offshore, WEC devices (Wave Electricity Converters) are deployed in the deep sea where ocean waves are at their most powerful. WECs can extract energy via a multitude of different motion patterns and wave characteristics, making them versatile and ideal for producing offshore energy.

Calwave's mission is to install 500 units of baseload ocean wave power for island communities by 2030.


This is the name of the first federally-approved commercial-scale, utility grid-connected wave energy site in the United States.

It will provide 20MW of power in Newport Origan.

This system operates in shallow water environments, closer to the coastline, reflecting the multitudes of possibilities and applications of WEC technology.


They have set an ambitious target of "Displacing 500 million tons of GHG annually by 2050" (Calwave, 2022)
