The 50 kW Langlee E1 is expected to generate 280 MWh annually, and the plan is to deploy three more wave devices in the following year – which could be enough to supply the whole island with electricity.

The project is estimated to cost £900,000.

Founder and CEO Julius Espedaal, said at All-Energy: “Stewart Island is an area of natural beauty with 85% dedicated as a nature reserve, but it suffers from a diesel generated power supply. Our Wave Energy Converter technology is ideal for the size of waves experienced around Stewart Island and will provide a sustainable, clean energy solution.”
