Eco Wave Power, an innovative wave energy developer, was shortlisted for the Prestigious Erasmus Energy Awards to be held as part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2015, in the Netherlands.
The Erasmus Energy Business Award nominations were judged based on the novelty of the project’s approach and proposal, as well as the quality and value of the business potential and its contribution to the planet.
The final nominees were chosen by a panel of six judges, who felt that Eco Wave Power's novelty stood out in comparison to the rest of the submissions.
