Triton Wave Power

Oscilla Power is developing a technology for harnessing wave energy.  The Triton Wave Energy Converter (WEC) is a two bodied device, comprised of a surface object and ring.  As the barge like surface surges with the waves, the ring below resists the movement, creating energy.  Sounds simple enough, but similar machines have failed in the past due to the unforgiving nature of the ocean. Oscilla is countering these previous defeats by squeezing metal alloys to create magnetic poles within the metal.  This is a progressive alternative to the displacement used with previous electric powered models.  If succeeded, each unit could supply 600kW on average; The United States alone could power ⅓ of it’s electricity using wave energy.
