'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Team for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point

Innovator in wave energy conversion.

Submission date 9 de marzo de 2022 Founders Maurizio Cippitelli Development location Falerone, Reino Unido

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Reduce emissions from the consumption of fossil fuels with the use of highly efficient technology for converting the energy of the motion of the sea waves.

How is the problem solved?

Generma has developed and patented a technological solution suitable for exploiting wave energy with high efficiency.

What is the customer target?

Wave farms or co-production with existing wind farms; Oil platforms for replacing diesel generation or decommissioning platforms for changing their intended use; Minor islands not connected with national grid.

How is this solution different?

The technical approaches used by other companies to develop their own technology have mainly been based on different conversion systems: point absorbers, terminals, overtopping devices, etc. Generma differs from everyone because today it is one of the few companies to use the attenuation mode: a conversion technique with one of the highest degrees of efficiency.
