affordable electricity
from near shore waves!

Clean, sustainable, efficient

About us

CleanWave is an award-winning near shore wave-to-energy converter (WEC) that generates electricity from waves. It has a patented technology and currently moving to TRL-7 level commercialization phase. The wave energy community & passionate team of engineers are making it even better day by day.

CleanWave is the national winner of GCIP 2014 by UNIDO, GEF and Clean-Tech-Open. It offers a low-cost, low-risk investment for energy companies both due to the design of the WEC and targeted near-shore market having less harsh sea conditions but significant energy potential.

  • Scalable, lower cost investment aiming shorter ROI term and minimal OPEX
  • Oil free & nature friendly technology with environmental sensitivity
  • High electrical efficiency designed for 54% conversion and potential for more

Introducing Cleanwave Energy

Cleanwave Project

Ocean energy has the potential to play a significant role in the future energy system, contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions and stimulating economic growth in coastal and remote areas.

CleanWave is a near-shore Wave Energy Converter (WEC) that generates electricity via waves created mostly by wind over the seas. Company developed two verified working prototypes.

CleanWave is a patented technology. It is also awarded based on the votes of independent judges. It is 2014 GCIP - Global Clean Tech Innovation Programme Turkey National Winner and British Technology Summit 2014 3th Winner.

Project is accepted to the Vattenfall: Greenfield program which provides a direct channel to the potential clients for commercialized products

Wave Energy

Policy & Regulation: Ocean energy has attracted increasing interest, particularly in the EU, which is currently at the forefront of ocean energy development. In the EU, the aim is to reach 100 GW of combined wave and tidal capacity installed by 2050.

However, current forecasts estimate a global installed capacity of only about 170 MW by 2020, which represents only 7% of the NREAPs (Targets set by member states in National Renewable Energy Action Plans)

Over 50% of global RD&D investments in ocean energy are taking place within the EU.The EU has implemented support mechanisms to aid the development of ocean energy.66MW of ocean energy projects in the EU are expected to become operational by 2018.
