C·Power: Clean Renewable Energy from Ocean Waves

Columbia Power Technologies, Inc. (C·Power) is a worldwide leader in wave energy systems. We harness the physical energy of ocean waves and convert it into usable electricity in a sustainable way. Our patented power generation system is scalable; the system can be sized and deployed in a wide range of applications from powering oceanographic sensors to generating megawatt-scale electricity which can feed into the electrical grid. We are commercializing a next-generation marine renewable energy solution that will deliver the qualities that our customers need to develop profitable wave energy projects: extended survivability, competitive cost of energy, and low impact. 


We have one of the longest sea trials on record with demonstrated high availability and a strong capacity factor. 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.

Cost Effective

Our approach to delivering a competitive cost of energy includes innovative design solutions, such as a non-corrosive composite structure and highly-efficient electric generators.

Low Impact

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.
