Welcome to the BASM-WEC project website
A project which takes inspiration from the fins of marine animals to design flexible material Wave Energy Converters is one of two led by Strathclyde to be awarded a share of £7.5m funding. We are developing and testing cutting-edge new wave energy technologies to help the UK achieve its Net Zero goal. As one of a total of eight projects, supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, part of UK Research and Innovation, we will build on the UK’s leading role in marine wave energy to overcome challenges to develop devices that capture the energy generated by waves and convert it into a renewable source of electricity.
