Harvesting Wave energy with very slimpler mechanism yet low cost design=Practical for real world.



Basically This patented mechanism is very simple yet very cost effective and energy efficient. The mechanism has a floating platform with plow shaped wave catchers which intercepts waves in order to absorb energy. The energy absorbed helps spin the generators on tehe floating platform.

Which proposals are included in your plan and how do they fit together?

Explanation of the emissions scenario calculated in the Impact tab

What are the plan’s key benefits?

Over 54% world population lives within 150 mile of a coast ling. With addition to industrial development, coastal area consumes about 70-80% of total electricity. Once refined this technology will help generate electricity at lower cost compare to any other method in existence presently. The technology will have huge impact on environment and is quickly scalable because it uses over 80% parts available into the market presently.

What are the plan’s costs?

A Medium scale model with 200kw continuous electricity generating unit would cost USD $ 180,000. This unit will generate electricity worth

365 x 24 x 200kwh x $ 0.09 = $157,680.

What are the key challenges to enacting this plan?
