Wave power can fit more than five time worlds energy demand.

It is a technology challenge which needs international cooperation


The earth is covered for 70% with oceans. This hughes seas could produce up to 80,000TWh of electricity per year. Five times more than is needed right now. Worldwide we need cooperation because it is a technology challenge to explore this green power efficient. But if we can we have enough energy to cover the global demand for energy.

We listed a few wave power solutions
  • The DEXAWAVE wave energy converter consists two rigid pontoons, hinged together
  • The Vigor Wave Energy Converter is based on a floating hose, using water and air as mechanical parts to absorb the wave energy
  • Wave Carpet: can extract the energy of the ocean waves By the Berkeley Team
  • Hayle Wave Hub gets first energy device
  • Wave energy plants in Brazil

Will these new solar technologies close the energy gap in the world?


New trends in solar technology are organic or plastic solar cells with nano technology. There are probably hundreds of groups in the world working on this. We introduce you to some breakthrough technologies.
  1. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology aims to make organic photovoltaics competitive to their inorganic counterparts
  2. Technical University of Denmark has developed a scalable and industrially viable protocol to manufacture large sheets of flexible organic solar cells
  3. More efficiently energy when align face-on the cells
  4. New nano-material could boost solar panel efficiency as high as 80%
