The marine renewable energy sector is emerging fast in Europe and else where as many countries strive towards more
ambitious goals for reducing greenhouse gaz emission and their disastrous effects on health, environment and climate change

While, in the medium term, wind is likely to remain the largest contributor to output among marine renewable energy sources, other marine renewable technologies are the subject of keen interest due to the rapid progression of innovative projects.

Wave energy in particular is beginning to realize its potential, with exceptionally high energy density, an abundant and relatively predictable resource, of strategic interest to power grid operators. An added advantage of wave power is the high number of potential sites close to consumers. (it is anticipated that by 2025, 75% of the world’s population will live in coastal areas [1])

Wave energy is less hindered by environment constraints (visibility, noise, etc) than other technologies.

Moreover, by leveraging on experience gained in the offshore Oil & Gas sector, commercial and industrial development phases can be considerably shortened and secured.

Hydrocap is committed to unlocking the technical and commercial barriers so as to turn into a power technology delivering
safe, clean, local, reliable and competitive energy with its SEACAP wave enenergy converter design.
