Fostering a diverse energy portfolio and spurring innovation in the USA: An interview with University of Southern California Energy Expert Professor Shon R. Hiatt

“Ocean energy is very relevant to the United States’ future energy needs for two reasons. First, marine energy helps diversify the country’s energy portfolio, creating a hedge for input disruptions and price volatility. Second, the US has abundant potential for ocean energy production. In particular, the west coast of the United States has prospective sites […]

What does it take to build the world’s largest wave energy test-rig? 

While bringing its groundbreaking Wave Energy Converter (WEC) technology into commercial scale systems over the last three years, CorPower has also developed an on-land test-rig capable of accurately simulating wave loading from any ocean site around the world.    The ocean is a fierce and unforgiving environment. All too often we have witnessed pioneers deploying solutions at sea before being thoroughly tested on land, only to go on and fail. Many risks involved in deploying first-of-a-kind systems can be eliminated if machines are rigorously tested and debugged in a controlled machine hall environment before ocean deployment.   CorPower’s first commercial scale WEC called C4 has a diameter […]
