Spindrift Energy’s Wave-Powered Energy System
Spindrift Energy, innovator of the wave-powered Spindrift Energy System and recipient of a highly selective and prestigious Energy Innovation Small Grant (EISG) from the California Energy Commission (CEC) is pleased to announce it has begun machining components for its first power-generating prototype. In fulfillment of the EISG grant, Spindrift Energy will construct and deploy a prototype device in the ocean waters off Southern California this year. Additionally, a comprehensive report evaluating the prototype’s sea test for the EISG and CEC will be produced at the conclusion of the grant period in December.
Spindrift’s prototype will generate electricity for measurement and analysis purposes only; however, we are confident this prototype and our participation in the grant program will serve as an important catalyst for the near-term installation of large-scale Spindrift devices capable of transmitting electricity to consumers throughout California and the world.
