GLOBAL WARMING AND HEAVILY POLLUTED AIR IN MANY LARGE CITIES ARE GOOD REASONS TO FOCUS ON CLEAN ENERGY, BUT THE URGENT AND GROWING WORLDWIDE NEED FOR RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ELECTRICITY AT AFFORDABLE PRICES IS ALSO DRIVEN BY MARKET DEMAND
The impressive growth in demand for Marine Renewable Energy is driven by energy security needs and trends in decarbonization, as well as rapidly expanding coastal populations.
Thousands of islands and underserved areas around the world rely on expensive, polluting diesel generators and are actively looking for renewable energy solutions.
Waves work 23/4/365, are highly predictable, utterly renewable, and are available close to coastal populations. Wave energy can therefore offer better grid integration than is possible with many other renewables, and does not require energy storage.
The wave parks create artificial reefs that can serve as a refuges or nurseries for marine wildlife. In addition, the Seabased system does not create eyesores, make loud noises, harm sea life or require significant land area.
The uniquely scalable, modular design of Seabased’s proprietary Wave Power Park system is cost-competitive and requires relatively low CAPEX and OPEX.
10 KEY CUSTOMER BENEFITS OF SEABASED WAVE POWER:
Robust, mechanically simple design proven to withstand storms
Modular “plug & play” design saves costs, increases flexibility, reduces risk, and allows cost recovery to begin quickly.
Small footprint: produces a lot of power per square meter of operation and requires virtually no land use
Optimized for medium wave climates
Virtually invisible from a short distance
Creates artificial reefs which are a refuge for marine life
No pollutants or blades that harm marine life
The predictibility of waves 24/7/365 leads to easier grid integration
No need for energy storage
Low maintenance cost
