Irish marine energy project developer Simply Blue Energy has found Columbia Power as one of most suitable companies for the development of future commercial wave energy projects.

Columbia Power, along with Sweden-based CorPower, topped the review of available near-commercial wave energy technology suppliers, which was part-financed by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

The review, dubbed Horizon Scanning and undertaken by Wave Venture on behalf of SBE, focused on identifying and reviewing the most promising current and forthcoming wave energy technologies.

The goal of the project was to determine which wave energy technology companies are on a path to commercial readiness and how close each is to achieving market entry, according to SBE.
