The sustainable energy market is booming but wave energy still has some roadblocks. Cost are too high and yields too low; waves are still hard to catch and can do a lot of damage. The Slow Mill, a light Wave Energy Converter, uses a unique and innovative technology to capture energy from waves and convert it into electricity, is designed to harness world's vast wave energy resources to provide clean predictable electricity to our communities.
Slowmill Sustainable Projects was was founded in 2012 to research and develop the Slow Mill wave energy technology, based on a unique blade construction that greatly resists open flow.
In the past years the technology was developed by testing increasingly larger scale models in the lab, on open water and in the North Sea to a point where several well performing autonomic plug and play models can be demonstrated.
Members of the management team own the technology and are highly motivated to bring a successful product onto the market to accelerate the energy transition, support ocean life, lessen fossil fuel dependence and boost the circular economy.
