THE WETFEET PROJECT
Wave Energy Transition to Future by Evolution of Engineering and Technology

Recent experience in wave energy has revealed issues with reliability of technical components, survivability, high development costs and risks, long time to market, as well as industrial scalability of proposed and tested technologies.

However, wave energy is technically feasible and has vast potential to fulfill part of the global demand for a clean and safe energy source so as to integrate the backbone of a secure energy system in the next few decades and contribute to the creation of jobs in the Eu and woldwide.

Having substantial insight into successes and drawbacks in past developments and existing concepts, the promoters have identified ‘breakthrough features’ that address the above mentioned obstacles, i.e. components, systems and processes, as well as the respective IP. These breakthroughs are applied to two wave concepts, the OWC and the Symphony, under development by members of the consortium.
