C·Power: Clean Renewable Energy from Ocean Waves
Columbia Power Technologies, Inc. (C·Power) is a worldwide leader in wave energy systems. We make power at sea by harnessing the physical energy of ocean waves and converting it into usable electricity. Our patented power generation systems are scalable and can be sized and deployed in a wide range of applications, from powering oceanographic sensors to generating megawatt-scale electricity. We are bringing a suite of products to market that deliver the qualities that our customers need: reliable, cost-effective energy generation and storage that reduces the cost of ownership of marine operations and the cost of energy for remote and grid applications.
Our system is designed for a long service life and to operate offshore in the widest range of sea conditions without shutting down in heavy seas or storms.
Our approach to delivering a lower cost for our customers includes innovative design solutions that consider operational and logistical lifecycle costs and requirements.
We are committed to commercializing a system with the lowest stakeholder and environmental impact possible. New advances — like our reduced-impact mooring system — demonstrate this commitment.
