C-Power bolsters the marine economy by harnessing wave power for remote applications

Vicor Corporation, the leader in high‑performance power modules, speaks with C-Power, a global leader in ocean wave energy systems, about how they harness and store wave power. An idea that began as a graduate project at Oregon State University has matured into a ground-breaking renewable energy power solutions for offshore applications that support the fast growing New Blue Economy.  

C-Power’s solutions meet the global demand to decarbonize energy production, by converting ocean waves into usable forms of energy, while also enabling data transmission to and from the Cloud. The electricity harnessed by C-Power’s autonomous offshore power systems (AOPS) powers remote marine projects and is an integral part to the company’s plans to unleash the next wave of zero-carbon energy for terrestrial electric grids and remote offshore mini-grids.
