LOS ANGELES, California — Eco Wave Power Global AB is prepping to release its disruptive wave energy technology tomorrow at the AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles event.
According to the US Energy Information Administration, wave energy can supply up to 66% of the US’ energy needs, and this is especially significant considering a recent UN study showing that about 60% of the global pollution is directly caused by the way that the world currently produces its electricity.
The AltaSea pilot project marks the official arrival of Eco Wave Power’s technology to the US, and it is believed to be the first onshore wave energy technology that will be deployed in the US.
Last year Eco Wave Power entered into an agreement with AltaSea to implement "a first-of-its-kind wave energy pilot" at AltaSea’s premises at the Port of Los Angeles. A year later Eco Wave Power has successfully modified, upgraded and transported the conversion unit to Los Angeles. The company said its technology has the ability to be easily transported and replicated to fit the energy needs of a country’s coastline.
Eco Wave Power has successfully deployed its technology across the globe, with plans to develop power stations in the US, Spain, Turkey, Portugal and other locations, as part of the company’s 404.7-MW project pipeline.
