Eco Wave Power: Harnessing Ocean Waves to Create Renewable Energy

A Conversation with Eco Wave Power's Inna Braverman

In episode 205 of the Disruptors for Good podcast, I speak with Inna Braverman, the founder of Eco Wave Power, about her journey in the renewable energy industry and the potential of wave power.

Listen to more Disruptors fro GOOD episodes.

Inna shares her inspiration for starting Eco Wave Power, which stemmed from her personal experience with the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

She explains the concept of wave power and its advantages over other renewable energy sources. Inna also discusses the challenges of scaling wave power, including regulatory hurdles and funding limitations.

She emphasizes the importance of policy support for the commercialization of wave energy. The conversation concludes with a discussion on the future goals and successes of Eco Wave Power.

About Eco Wave Power

Founded in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 2011, and now operating in Sweden, the innovative company stands at the forefront of an energy revolution.

Eco Wave Power has not only conceptualized but also successfully implemented a patented technology that converts ocean and sea waves into electricity.

Nearly 2.4 billion people, about 40% of the global population, live within 100 kilometers of a coast.

A Testament to Cost-Efficiency and Reliability

Eco Wave Power brings to the table a technology that is both smart and cost-efficient. Unlike traditional wave power technologies, which are often hampered by their offshore location and high maintenance costs, Eco Wave Power’s installations are uniquely land-based.

This strategic decision significantly reduces costs related to construction, operation, and maintenance, thanks to the installations’ proximity to grid connection points.

The technology is not just accessible but also modular and scalable, meaning it can be adapted to various scales and settings without losing efficiency.

This adaptability, combined with competitive construction and production costs—forecasted at a levelized cost for energy (LCOE) of approximately EUR 42 per MWh—positions Eco Wave Power as a leader in the renewable energy sector.

Intellectual Property and Environmental Consideration at Its Core

Eco Wave Power is not only an energy company; it’s an innovator and protector of intellectual property.

With several patents already secured and more pending, the company emphasizes the development and protection of its groundbreaking technology.

Eco Wave Power is not only an energy company; it's an innovator and protector of intellectual property.

This focus ensures the company’s long-term viability and leadership in the industry.

By utilizing existing man-made structures like piers, jetties, and breakwaters for its wave energy converters, Eco Wave Power ensures that there is minimal to no adverse environmental impact.

These structures, often part of the coastal landscape, are transformed into sources of clean electricity, epitomizing the essence of sustainable development.

Future Waves: Looking Ahead

Eco Wave Power’s journey is not just about harnessing the power of waves; it’s about changing the way we think about and use energy.

The company’s operational wave energy array, connected to the grid under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), is a testament to the viability and effectiveness of wave energy.

As we look to the future, the potential of wave power as a renewable energy source is immense and largely untapped.

With companies like Eco Wave Power leading the charge, the path towards a more sustainable and energy-independent world becomes not just a possibility but a reality.

The vision of Eco Wave Power is not just about powering homes and businesses; it’s about powering change.

As we ride the waves of this change, it’s clear that the future of renewable energy is bright, and it is powered by the relentless, rhythmic energy of our world’s oceans.
