IIT Madras generates power from sea waves
IIT Madras generates power from sea waves and aims to go commercial by 2024
India is planning to create more possible ways to generate green and clean energy from various sources. To achieve the goal of generating nearly 500 Gw India is taking every possible step.
A piece of recent news says that the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) is planning to create energy from Ocean Wave. They have invented the ‘Ocean Wave Energy Converter’ technique that can generate electricity from sea waves. The Device was deployed at a location about 6 KM off the coast of Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, at a location with a depth of 20 metres. This device targets generating 1MW of power from ocean waves in the next three years.

They are conducting deep research on this project and planning to commercialize this innovation by early 2024. As India has a nearly 7,500 km long coastline and has the capacity to produce nearly 54 Gw of energy.
By converting the tidal, wave, and thermal energy of the ocean their innovation may create a possible 40 Gw of energy – said Abdus Samad, Department of Ocean Engineering, IIT Madras.
This environmental friendly energy is much needed in recent days. It helps in many ways to fight against various odds that harm the climate.
