Finland, April 6, 2022: AW-Energy’s WaveRoller© wave energy technology has been re-validated with the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label following an assessment performed by external independent experts and based on verified standards.
It continues as a member of the #1000solutions challenge, an initiative by the Solar Impulse Foundation to select solutions that meet high standards in profitability and sustainability, and present them to decision-makers to fast-track their implementation.
The first certification by the Solar Impulse Foundation was received in April 2019.
To receive the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label, WaveRoller© was thoroughly assessed by a pool of independent experts according to 5 criteria covering the three main topics of Feasibility, Environmental and Profitability.
All labelled solutions are part of the #1000solutions portfolio that will be presented to decision-makers in business and government by Bertrand Piccard, Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation. The aim of this initiative is to encourage the adoption of more ambitious environmental targets and fast-track the implementation of these solutions on a large scale.
“This re-validation successfully identifies the economic profitability of WaveRoller© that protects the environment. The Solar Impulse Foundation has validated our WaveRoller© wave energy technology as one of their 1,000 solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way, and has re-issued us the Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions Label,” says Christopher Ridgewell, CEO of AW-Energy Oy. “We are delighted to receive this continued recognition which reinforces our approach in developing proven and viable wave energy technology to help to provide clean energy supply that helps to decarbonise society.”
Over the last two centuries, energy needs have skyrocketed, especially across the transportation and energy industry sectors. Fossil fuels are polluting and their reserves are limited. Societies across the world are facing a major challenge with the present energy crisis.
Decarbonisation of society is an inevitable and accelerating megatrend impacting both electricity and clean fuel production. The good news is that there are ways to reduce this energy crisis using WaveRoller© wave energy solutions.
