Wave energy converters (WECs) aim to extract as much energy as possible from the waves. The energy contained in the waves gradually decreases when it approaches to the shoreline.
Therefore, offshore sites is the best location to deploy the "Etymol Submarine Vessel Wave Converter" as they have the highest power available. Additionally, the ETYMOL's device is placed under the sea surface in order to withstand the pummeling of the waves and to increases its survivability to extreme weather conditions.
