Robotics principles help Sandia wave energy converters better absorb power of ocean waves

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Compared to wind and solar energy, wave energy has remained relatively expensive and hard to capture, but engineers from Sandia National Laboratories are working to change that by drawing inspiration from other industries. Sandia’s engineering team has designed, modeled and tested a control system that doubles the amount of power a wave […]

Wave energy researchers dive deep to advance clean energy source

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — One of the biggest untapped clean energy sources on the planet — wave energy — could one day power millions of homes across the U.S. But more than a century after the first tests of the power of ocean waves, it is still one of the hardest energy sources to capture. Now, engineers at […]
