Dolomiti Energia and University of Trento join forces for the environment
Wave power is a renewable source of energy with great potential.
Because this energy is widely available across the oceans, which cover more than 70% of the Earth, and because this constant wave motion is highly predictable and power density is high: 5 times greater than that of wind and 10 times greater than that of solar.
Yet, despite these advantages, wave energy is not widely used because the technologies we have to generate that power are not enough advanced.
Converting waves to electricity is very challenging.
To tackle the problem, the University of Trento is testing a very promising electro-mechanical device, developed from components that have already been used in aerospace industry.
Wave energy could really make a difference in the area of clean, renewable, sustainable energy sources. Challenges must be addressed quickly to meet sustainable development goals and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% compared with 1990 levels by 2030, and reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
The project is supported by Dolomiti Energia.
The 5x1000 campaign
As the deadline to submit your tax return approaches, you are offered the opportunity to make a donation (5 per thousand) to an organization of your choice.
If you choose to support research you will give Italy and its youth a future of innovation, growth and well-being. This is something the country really needs right now. A responsibility that involves all of us.
