  3. Why we are designing a wave energy device We have decided to design a wave energy power machine to help create electricity. We have also been set the task of actually building a model based on our design. We took part in a video conference with a man called Dan Pearsonwho is Chief Executive Officer of a renewable energy company called Meygen. Dan gave us some ideas to help us with our machine. We hope that we can get to build a big version of our design so it can go out to sea.

  4. How it works Our machine works by a float bobbing up and down. There is a bar attached to a wheel. The wheel turns around, spinning a shaft into a generator, making electricity. The generator is stored in a large pentagon shaped storage room. There are also large batteries used for storing electricity. The batteries are stored in the pentagon shaped storage room too.

  6. Questions you may ask • Q-Where would the device be positioned? • A-The model would be positioned on a beam over the tank. A full scale version would be anchored to the sea bed, near to the shore. We would have it where the biggest waves are. • Q-How would it be maintained and serviced? • A- A supporting boat. It is a simple device, maintained every six months. • Q- What makes our idea a good idea? • A-It produces energy and it doesn’t need fuel. • Q- What affect does it have on the environment ? • A-It will be a bright colour so ships can see it. It will have a small effect on fish and birds.

  7. Hope to be making energy for you in the future! 
