Company Summary

The world’s oceans hold enough practically extractable energy to power over 200M homes and create a retail market worth over $300B/year. To help its customers exploit this opportunity, CPower has developed a wave energy device that converts waves into electricity at rates that will reach parity with existing resources. CPower’s customers will purchase and operate units in grid-connected, offshore farms for utility-scale electricity production.
