The WaveRoller technology is well positioned to replace environmentally unfriendly power sources with clean and renewable energy generated from ocean waves. Harnessed by WaveRoller, this blue energy source is not only more benign to the environment than fossil fuel technologies but it also poses fewer risks than nuclear energy and is on par with, or even superior to other renewable energy sources.
A WaveRoller does not produce any emissions during operation. Other emissions during its lifecycle, from building the devices to its disposal, are significantly smaller than those of plants powered with fossil fuels.
The WaveRoller utilizes waves, which carry far more energy than wind in a site of comparable size. A WaveRoller provides about seven times more nominal power generating capacity than a wind turbine in a similar sized area.
Apart from its low space requirement, a WaveRoller device operates underwater and has a very low visual impact. The panel height is designed to minimize or completely eliminate its protrusion above the water surface, ensuring the preservation of the natural beauty of the sea and coastline.
The WaveRoller follows the movement of the water, which makes it very friendly to the surrounding marine life. The hydraulic, mechanical and electrical systems are also fully sealed inside the WaveRoller hull, which protects the marine life from noise and other possible pollutants.
