Solar and wind resources are too intermittent to lead the world to 100% clean power generation. Wave power is more consistent, predictable, and energy-dense than solar and wind, and can satisfy over 30% of global electricity demand as the world’s largest unused renewable resource.
CalWave’s xWave technology unlocks the power of ocean waves to equip coastal communities with baseload clean electricity. The xWave achieves the highest efficiency by operating fully autonomously and fully submerged, allowing for protection from aggressive swells and storms, while also permitting energy capture from multiple degrees of freedom. Designed for integration with island microgrids and offshore wind farms, the xWave offers potential for reducing cost and increasing grid reliability.
