Wave Energy System With Subsea Storage and Onshore Generation

Atmocean, Inc.
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States

Project Type:Water Power
Development Status:Early Stage Development (project identified, most permits, financing, partners and contracts required)
Project Size:Pilot Scale-2 ($200k - $2M)
Executive Summary:Atmocean’s wave energy system utilizes an array of seawater pumps sending pressurized seawater to onshore Pelton motor connected to a generator. The system incorporates both force-limiting and array flexibility to enhance survival, and incorporates undersea storage of pressurized seawater automatically released during low wave conditions, to maintain operation.
