Dr. Stig Lundbäck has made research into heart pump for more than 30 years. He has even developed several patents inspired by his research work. CorPOWER is a company founded by himself that tries to make use of seawaves power working in a similar way that of heart pump.
Nowadays, Iberdrola is supporting CorPOWER to develop a prototype by 2016. Besides, a final version is expected to be available by 2018.
Waves power is supposed to be able to generate from 10% to 20% energy necessities from all over the world. Nevertheless, this resource is unefficient and really expensive currently. The project HiWave is looking for new ways of making lighter and cost-effective marine buoys. In this way, wave energy could be as efficient as other renewable sources.
