Eco Wave Power has developed a patented, smart and cost-effective technology to convert ocean and sea waves into green electricity. The company’s mission is to help in the fight against climate change by enabling commercial energy production from the ocean and sea waves.

The company is currently finalising the construction of its grid-connected project in Jaffa Port near Tel-Aviv, Israel, with co-investment from the Israeli Ministry of Energy. The company will also soon begin installing its latest pilot project at AltaSea’s facilities in the Port of Los Angeles and has concession agreements for commercial installations in Spain, Portugal and other European countries. In total, the project pipeline amounts to 327.7 MW.

Eco Wave Power has received funding from the European Regional Development Fund, Innovate UK and the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. The company has also received the United Nations Global Climate Action Award.
