Wave Energy Converter (WEC) is the essential system for harvesting wave energy and turning it into electricity.
A standard WEC system consists of:

Using renewable energy sources can help us overcome environmental challenges, depletion of fossil fuels, and creating more jobs.
Today's energy consumption level is mainly based on fossil fuels, and this can only continue if alternative sources enter the game. Renewable energy sources are the answer, as the resources will be available as long as the sun is shining.
Weptos Wave Energy Converter is developed out of 99% recyclable & sustainable materials. Weptos ensures that all our WEC systems can be reused after their life span.
Weptos aims to be the world's most affordable wave energy converter. Weptos WEC is based on modular construction in a simple design, this way, the production process is fast and affordable.
Wave energy has a relatively high energy density compared to wind and solar solutions, meaning waves contain a substantial amount of energy because of the consistent wave patterns.
Wind energy has a moderate energy density, while solar energy has a lower energy density since sunlight is more dispersed.
All three sources can play a role in adiversified and sustainable energy mix, each suitable for different contextsand conditions.
Weptos WEC is fully scalable solution with multiple MWh converters. In the initial process of installation, the Weptos crew will research the wave data of that specific location. Weptos will produce a wave energy converter most efficient for particular ocean conditions and locations.
Weptos WEC will primarily harvest the waves from the surface with almost no constructions deeper in the water column. In this way, the interference of Weptos with marine life will be very limited. Also, let us not forget that the beautiful creators below the surface are highly intelligent.
