Australian based BioPower Systems BioStream technology generates electricity from tidal currents and was inspired by the Thunniform locomotion exhibited by shark and tuna species.
Their BioWave technology generates electricity from wave energy and was inspired by the motion of underwater plants (think kelp fronds!) that are anchored to the sea floor. Read more about both technologies here.
Similarly inspired, Carnegie Wave Energy Limited’s CETO wave power converter produces high pressure seawater from the power of waves that can then power a turbine for electricity generation.
“The beauty of these wave-power technologies is that they move with the power of the ocean rather than putting themselves in confrontation with it.”-Ocean Energy Council
