At Eco Wave Dynamis, we face the sea not with fear, but with utmost respect. This is why we dared and managed to create an innovative mechanism that converts wave power into pure electrical power. This pioneering mechanism has been designed to be more efficient in comparison with other sea wave power systems, and to have the lowest possible construction cost. It has been created after a long period of continuous research, that was conducted in real sea conditions and not in test tanks with artificial waves, where we sought to gain a deep understanding of the vast power potential of the waves. We named our system “Daedalus”, inspired by the ingenuity of this mythical inventor and polymath. Its technology is based on the operating principle of the free gyroscope, namely on the operation of a gyroscope rotor with freedom of rotation of its three axes. By means of a rugged lever, the floater is connected to the gyroscopic mechanism, which converts the free motion of the floater into rotational motion.
The 5 main advantages of the system
Electricity from ocean waves
Harness the infinite energy of the sea for direct, low-cost electricity without costly investments.
At Eco Wave Dynamis we designed and built our own mechanism to convert wave energy into electricity. A small mechanism that can be placed on any coastline or in an special craft in any location at sea and meet the «green» electricity needs of seaside homes, hotels, campsites, restaurants and all other seaside establishments.
This innovative mechanism was designed with high efficiency in generating electricity from ocean waves and low manufacturing costs in mind.
It was developed after a long period of research in the real conditions of the Aegean Sea and not in basins with artificial waves, in order to fully understand the specificities of the Greek seas.
We named our innovative mechanism «Daedalus», inspired by the ingenuity of the mythical engineer of antiquity. The mechanism consists of a float that follows the direction of the wave to make the most of the dynamic and kinetic energy of the waves.

Possible applications of «Daedalus”
Wave energy from the sea is an absolutely clean, inexhaustible, safe and economically viable energy source. Its scale is unimaginable, as the world’s oceans cover about two-thirds of the Earth’s surface. Researchers from the UK Maritime Foresight Panel estimated that «if less than 0.1% of the ocean’s renewable energy could be converted into electricity, it would meet current global energy demand more than five times over!» (House of Commons, UK: https://tinyurl.com/9yv36rw3 )
We did not choose to build large, expensive wave power stations connected to the grid as this is a less efficient solution with existing technology.
We preferred to meet the needs of end users (residential or commercial) directly with small offshore inverters built to suit the needs of each customer.
We are investing in renewable energy sources because they will dominate in the near future. Overall, it is a fast-growing sector that offers high returns on investment.
The use of wave energy in the sea with the “Daedalus” mechanism of Eco Waves Dynamis, is a sustainable, innovative solution ideal for the islands and all coastal areas of Greece, as well as in other archipelagos.
The Daedalus project can be built using the knowledge EWD has gained over the last 8 years.
Finding the right investors to fulfil this project is going to be the next challenge for the company.
