It’s a problem that has long thwarted wave energy pioneers – how to transform the slow back and forth motion of waves into a reliable and cost-effective stream of electricity. Now two Edinburgh firms – Artemis Intelligent Power and Quoceant – have together secured £2.5 million in funding from the Scot-Govt. to test a prototype which aims to do just that. They have developed a technology which includes the use of digital displacement hydraulics to harness the massive but slow and erratic power output of wave energy machines.
