About

CalWave Power Technologies Inc. provides a solution to harness the renewable power of ocean waves to produce electricity and freshwater.

CalWave’s patented Wave Energy Converter (WEC) is moored offshore, simple and scalable. Our initial shallow water approach was inspired by the ability of a muddy seafloor to effectively absorb over passing ocean waves within only a few wavelengths.

Our patented solution operates submerged, allowing it to survive stormy seas while causing no visual pollution or posing any collision danger.

CalWave Power Technologies is a winner of the US Wave Energy Prize by meeting the threshold to double the energy captured from ocean waves compared to the state of the art.
