Swell Energy has simplified the most common form of sea power generation, reducing complexity, maintenance and costs. Like many wave power technologies, Swell Energy’s new system is based on the concept of an oscillating water column: a pipe is placed vertically in the sea and as the water rises and  falls within it, a wind turbine at the top is driven. Typically the suction and exhalation of the tube is fed through the turbine. Swell Energy’s successfully patented innovation is simply to provide a second outlet, so that the wind is only ever sucked in, not pushed out. Less turns out to be more, as the turbine is cheaper and more efficient.
