    The best battery on Earth is free and it is powering the new Blue Economy

    The best battery on Earth is free and it is powering the new Blue Economy

    Podcast host Robert Gendron, Corporate Vice President, Product Development
    Special Guest: Reenst Lesemann, CEO at C-Power, in Corvallis, OR.   Columbia Power Technologies, Inc., or C-Power, is a global leader in wave energy systems.   They are helping to expand the Blue Economy by providing reliable, cost-effective energy generation and storage, as well as data and communication services for offshore applications.
    C-Power autonomous offshore power systems (AOPS) float in the ocean, capturing mechanical wave energy and converting it into usable power for a wide range of applications. The AOPS design, called SeaRAY, can generate 10W – 1MW from ocean waves. To achieve its goals on the lower end of the power spectrum, C-Power targeted a high power-to-weight ratio, requiring a very compact power delivery network.
    Lesemann explains how they are bringing power opportunities to the ocean, which is a veritable a power desert without supporting technology.  The marine economy is limited because there are not power outlets at sea, which hampers all major projects.   C-Power provide mini-grids at sea for research, exploration, data gathering and remote satellite transition. The AOPS design, called SeaRAY, can generate 10W – 1MW from ocean waves.

    Ccell Renewables is reversing coastal erosion while enhancing the ocean’s natural ecosystems

    Ccell Renewables is reversing coastal erosion while enhancing the ocean’s natural ecosystems

    Special Guest: Dr. Will Bateman, CEO from Ccell Renewables (United Kingdom). Ccell is a remarkable company that propagates coral reefs to reverse devastating coastal erosion. By working with nature their mission is to restore a sustainable balance to coastal environments and bring lasting protection to coastal communities around the world.
     
    Will talks about the science behind the process and the precise power needed to stimulate sustainable coral growth. The newly formed coral serves as a protective barrier for coastal communities and fosters a natural environment that attracts marine life that help maintain a healthy coral reef.
     
    With new locations around the globe, Will discusses the successes and challenges of working with nature and using renewable sources of energy- like solar and wave power — to carefully grow coral.
