  • Britain aims to rule the waves again

    (AXcess News) London - Britain prided itself on ruling the waves in the 19th century; they might once again in the 21st century. But not with its Navy. This time, Britain's chosen vessels are new technologies that convert the pounding of the waves and the ebbing of tides into the thrum of electricity. While still years behind other alternative-energy forms, wave and tidal power systems are ...

  • Wave energy innovation wins SETsquared student scholarship

    June 2nd 2011 - The SETsquared partnership, one of the UK’s most successful university collaborations, has announced the results of its competition to find a student to take part in the Kauffman Global Scholars Program.   The winner is 22-year-old Alistair Shepherd, who is in the final year of a Masters degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at the University of ...


  • SIE-CAT wave energy accumulator, technology applications

    This unique and proprietary SIE-CAT Wave Energy Accumulator technology, supporting 5 to 10 floats or more as a single array, provides superior results of cost by virtue of its ability to store energy from multiple arrays (mini farm), before Wave Energy Conversion (WEC) to electricity is performed. This two-phase approach to harvesting wave energy introduces a cost effective magnitude-of-scale ...


  • New ideas give energy boost to wave power

    All along the coasts of Europe where the Atlantic waves crash onto the shore there are experimental wave power stations producing electricity. Now engineers in Norway and Sweden − two of the countries trying hardest to develop this technology − have announced “breakthroughs” in their methods, which the inventors believe will make wave power competitive. At present, most ...
