A medium-sized wave power plant has been successfully tested in storm waters in the Black Sea. The Eco Wave Power (EWP) system, which can generate enough electricity for 10 households from two floaters, was installed to mark international Mother Earth Day in April.
Eco Wave Power has successfully installed a medium-scale wave energy power plant, in the Black Sea, during the month of April, 2012. The installation of EWP’s system, took place during that month in recognition of the international Mother Earth Day, celebrated in more than 175 countries every year.
In the race to grab a piece of the huge untapped wave energy market, Eco Wave Power founder David Leb believes he has a technology that can beat his more than 100 competitors by making the ideal compromise.
Only two months after the testing and approval of its small scale model (in cooperation with the Hydro Mechanic Institute of Kiev), EWP is in the final construction phase of its medium scale wave energy generation system.

Developers first looked to the ocean for offshore wind power, a conveniently windy and out-of-the way site for giant turbines. But increasingly, energy companies are realizing that sea water itself can be harnessed to generate electricity.
