Eco Wave Power Global AB, a leading, publicly traded onshore wave energy company, announces that the Company’s founder and Chief Executive Officer Inna Braverman was named as the recipient of AltaSea’s Innovation Award, given annually to companies or individuals that are creating innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems.
Ms. Braverman will accept the award at AltaSea’s annual fundraising event, Blue Hour, on October 14, 2023. Tickets for the event will go on sale in August and can be purchased at www.AltaSea.org.
Ms. Braverman joins an impressive list of recipients for the Innovation Award, including Robert Downey Jr.’s FootPrint Coalition and Esri’s Chief Scientist Dr. Dawn Wright, the first and only Black person to dive to Challenger Deep, the deepest point on Earth. Others honored at previous Blue Hour events include the legendary ocean explorers Dr. Bob Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic, Sylvia Earle, the first person to walk solo on the bottom of the ocean, and Phillippe Cousteau, ocean explorer and the grandson of Jacques Cousteau.
“I am incredibly humbled and honored to join the likes of ocean legends such as Dr. Ballard and Sylvia Earle,” said Ms. Braverman. “AltaSea represents a transformative vision for the future of our oceans, and I am grateful to be a part of this remarkable community of innovators and advocates. Together, we can inspire and create meaningful change – one wave at a time.”
The theme for the fourth annual Blue Hour is “Women Stewarding the Ocean.” Ms. Braverman will be one of four women to be honored at the event. Other Innovation Award recipients will be announced in the coming months.
“We are excited to recognize Inna Braverman at the Blue Hour: Women Stewarding the Ocean for her incredible work in promoting ocean energy throughout the world,” said AltaSea President & CEO Terry Tamminen, who served as Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency for then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. “Ms. Braverman is leading the charge in making ocean energy a reality and we are excited to be home to their first ever ocean energy power station in the United States.”
