Eco Wave Power is Finalizing the Construction of its Medium-Scale Wave Energy Generation System

The medium scale power plant will be implemented on a pier in the Black sea during the first quarter of 2012, and will produce a minimum of stable 5KW from each floater.

TEL AVIV, Israel, March 5, 2012


David Leb, founder, will be lecturing about EWP's unique technology in Berlin, Germany.

Only two months after the testing and approval of its small scale model (in cooperation with the Hydro Mechanic Institute of Kiev), Eco Wave Power is already in final construction phases of its medium scale wave energy generation system. The medium scale power plant will be implemented on a pier in the Black sea during the first quarter of 2012, and will produce a minimum of stable 5KW from each floater.

As can be seen in the company's website (http://www.ecowavepower.com), the company has already secured funding for three ocean energy generation systems, the last of which will be a full-size commercial scale power plant, with the ability to supply electricity up to1000 households

According to the founder, Mr. David Leb: "When Eco Wave Power started to develop its unique wave energy technology, we knew that the greatest challenge of the wave energy industry is to find the "golden middle" between producing the maximum amount of KW, while still insuring the reliability and the long life span of the system. The problem was that on the one hand high waves enable the greatest KW production, but also impose the highest risk to the system. On the other hand, low waves do not endanger the system, yet they also do not produce sufficient KW amounts. Another problematic issue important to address is the cost of such system".

The developing countries had spent as much as $40 to $60 billion a year on electricity by the end of the 20th century (G8, RETF, 2001), and still approximately 40% of the population in these countries remains without access to electricity.

These countries need a reliable, yet cost-efficient solution to their energy needs, and therefore one of the greatest emphases in EWP's development process was the price.

EWP's system is being developed to produce electricity for a cheaper price then traditional energy generation methods such as: coal, gas and oil and also cheaper then renewable energy generation methods such as: wind or Solar.

Mr. David Leb, will be making a presentation titled "Wave Energy Generation Difficulties Solved by Eco Wave Power" at the "Energy Harvesting and Storage" conference by IDTechEx, to be held in Berlin, Germany on the 15-16 of May, 2012.

In such conference, Mr. Leb will explain how Eco Wave Power's technology is able to address four major issues: Cost, Reliability, Compatibility and Sufficient energy production, which were always seen as barriers to the commercialization of wave energy technologies.

The conference will host top of the field companies, such as: Volvo, Nokia, Jaguar, Sharp, Philips, ABB, Microsemi and more, and will reinforce Eco Wave Power's position as a leading company in the wave energy field.

Eco Wave Power came up with a realistic product in the wave energy field, and

During the upcoming testing of the medium-scale system "Our work will be the presentation of our capabilities" (Edward Gibbon).

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
