SEA-TITAN: a first step towards the superconducting wave energy production

05/08/2021


By 2050 the 10% of Europe’s electricity demand would be produced by ocean energy (100 GW of ocean energy capacity – 350 TWh of electricity).


The ocean energy is based on the use of Wave Energy Converters which produce energy from waves.

The core of a WEC is the power Take-Off, which transforms mechanical movements into electrical energy.


Superconductivity can help to meet the energetic goals enhancing the power generated by electrical machines without increasing volumes.

The best choice is to work with a high temperature superconductor as MgB2: thanks to the stability and the relative high Tc of the material, maintenance costs and efforts could be significantly reduced.
