In our efforts to ply technology in some of the toughest conditions to somehow fulfill our in-satiated energy cravings, we have redefined the entire concept of farming. Australia’s AquaGen has set up plans to establish ‘Wave Farms’ that deliver renewable ocean energy.

The Surge Drive Equipment is a cutting edge technology that ploughs an array of bobbing power-generating buoys connected to a small platform with the help of that also help transport electricity to the platform.

The equipment functions perfectly well under both normal and stormy conditions. While the buoys remain afloat under normal weather conditions, they can also be pulled down below the surface during during turbulent times, where they continue generating power without getting damaged. While the company claims highest efficiency in power transportation, the technology certainly carves a niche in delivering renewable ocean energy.
