UW-APL: Riding Waves to Generate Electricity

A YouTube video from the Applied Physics Lab at UW shows MiniWEC, a small Wave Energy Converter test platform under development by PMEC. With it, APL-UW researchers are making important contributions to the marine renewable energy community — scalable hydrodynamic WEC models and adaptive computer controls to maximize energy capture.
