Wavepiston Denmark has developed a very promising technology to harvest the energy from waves, both for electricity production and desalination of sea water (producing freshwater).
Wave energy has a huge potential, is a stable resource and is very predictable compared to wind energy.
The technology is protected by a broad, conceptual patent. It has been tested and verified in a wave tank, a small scale pilot in the sea and latest in a consortium with Vryhof Anchors, Fiellberg and the Technical University of Denmark we have tested our prototype in the North Sea.
The first full-scale system is to be installed in Gran Canaria this year.
