CalWave Open Water Demo - Budget Period 1 Reports


The objective of the project is to advance the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of the Wave Energy Converter (WEC) developed by CalWave Wave Power Technologies Inc (CalWave) through advanced numerical simulations, dynamic hardware tests, and ultimately a scaled open water demonstration deployment while continuing to exceed DOE's target ACE threshold of 3m/M$. The outcomes of Budget Period 1 will be a detailed design of the scaled demonstration unit and bench testing of the critical hardware components.
