Short Description:

# Harvests wave energy with daily trips to offshore locations and returns back to port for delivery to the grid
Energy is stored locally on the vessel during harvesting phase
Energy is placed on the grid during periods of high demand (normally mid-day),
# Eliminates expensive undersea power cables needed for other wave energy technologies,
# Can be moved safely to port during severe storms,
# Overcomes regulatory hurdles by not being a permanent structure.
