A Mexican researcher associated with the University of Manchester, UK, contributed to the development and optimization of a prototype that converts wave energy into electrical energy.
In an interview with the News Agency of the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT), Efraín Carpintero Moreno explained that the model could be up to eight times more efficient than the prototypes developed today.
The floating device is made of steel and use a hydraulic actuator, which activates an electric generator that performs the conversion of wave energy into electrical energy.
Moreno stressed that the benefit of this project is that . . .
