CalWave Power Technologies Inc.
Ocean Waves to Watts and Water.
CalWave’s mission is to unlock the vast and steady carbon-free power from ocean waves. CalWave is bringing superior power generating technology to market with a global reach. Our proprietary wave energy converter technology achieves high performance while surviving storms and extreme conditions. CalWave's solution and IP represents the next generation of transformational ocean energy technologies needed to finally unlock the vast carbon-free energy resources that exist in our oceans all around the world. ------ Milestones ------- • In 2016, CalWave spun out from UC Berkeley (Mechanical Engineering and CITRIS Foundry), graduated from Cyclotron Road and was a winner of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) US Wave Energy Prize. • In 2017, CalWave was awarded a multi-million open ocean demonstration contract by the US DOE and received support from Breakout Labs, Autodesk Technology Impact Program and the Sustainable Ocean Alliance. • In 2019, CalWave received two additional multi-million dollar awards by DOE to 1) build a commercial scale drive train in parallel to our open water demo and 2) design the next generation of our submerged pressure differential WEC and investments from High Tide Foundation and others. • In 2020, CalWave’s “xNode" was awarded the Grand Prize of the discovery stage of the Ocean Observing Prize to enable the “Ocean Internet of Things".
