Green Energy Out of the Blue
Mocean Energy is committed to designing and delivering wave energy converters to provide ocean equipment and the grid with clean, carbon-free, renewable energy.
Unlike solar, wind, and tidal power, there are no commercially successful wave power devices today. With Mocean Energy's expert team that combines scientific principles with real-world experience, a viable and cost-effective wave energy device is on the horizon.
The ocean remains a tremendous, untapped resource for green energy. Harnessing just one percent of our global wave power resource would power more than 50 million home and save more than 50 million tonnes of CO2 annually.
At Mocean Energy, we have an expert team that combines scientific principles and real-world experience to develop new technologies that can harness the power of waves – and accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon world.
Our approach utilises numerical modelling and optimisation, rapid prototyping and tank testing – allied to hard-won ocean experience – to deliver wave energy machines that produce high levels of power for their size and work in some of the world’s harshest environments.
Already we have secured more than £5 million in funding support from the Scottish and UK governments and the EU. With our prototype – the Blue X – deployed at sea for testing, we are gathering rich data for our two core technologies – the Blue Star and the Blue Horizon.
Blue Star : reliable, affordable, renewable
Blue Horizon : grid-scale power
Blue X : prototype testing
With £3.3 million secured from Wave Energy Scotland, we built a prototype model – the Blue X. Installed off the coast in spring 2021, the Blue X is providing tremendous data on machine performance that can be applied to both the Blue Star and the Blue Horizon.
