Wave power. Giant company teams with little startup in Portugal

Giant energy company Metso with its 27 million employees worldwide, is working on extremely innovative underwater wave energy tech with wild and crazy start-up AW-Energy: the inventor of the groundbreaking Waveroller.

Next summer, Portugal (getting 45% renewable power by the end of this year) is hosting the Waveroller’s full scale 300 kilowatt demonstration off the coast of Peniche.

The ocean is a punishing place but if wave power proves practical and scalable, then the amounts of clean renewable power will seem virtually endless.
