A Scottish project to convert the movement of waves into electricity has won £2.5 million in funding.
Tim Hurst, WES Managing Director said: “This project has the very real potential to result in a robust system for harnessing wave movement and converting it to electricity. Crucially, it will be capable of surviving harsh marine conditions and compatible with a wide variety of wave devices.”
The project is led by Ecosse Subsea in collaboration with Bathwick Electrical Design Ltd, Supply Design Ltd and Pure Marine Gen Ltd. The University of Edinburgh and Applied Renewables Research Ltd have been sub-contracted to provide additional support.
