Eco Wave Power Company is Taking the Fast Track to Success

January 3, 2012

TEL AVIV, Israel, January 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Eco Wave Power has completed the construction and testing phase of its first sea wave
energy generation models the “Wave Clapper”, and the “Power Wing”.

The testing took place in the wave pool of the Hydro-Mechanical National Institute of
Kiev. The “wave pool”, 2.5 meters depth, and 18 meters length, provided Eco Wave Power
with the perfect conditions for testing the unique wave energy generation technologies
under controlled wave heights and wave periods.

Among the different tests, Eco Wave Power has examined the characteristics of 8
different unique floaters shapes (all with the same volume), through the following
experiments: Measuring Voltage output in different wave heights, and different wave
periods, Measuring the influence of side waves on the floaters and the connections,
Examining different effects originating from the floaters’ shapes, Connecting the floaters
to different electric devices and showing a stable electric supply (with and without an
accumulator), Examining the influence of floaters in proximity to each other, Examining
the option to unite all floaters to one electric grid and charge a common accumulator, as
well as -Examining the floaters’ storm-protection Mechanisms.

All the experiments were monitored by officials from the Hydro-Mechanical Institute,
and some remarks were made with regard to potential improvements to the shapes of the
floaters. Eco Wave Power has immediately applied such remarks and the tests results were
determined to be successful.

The Protocol submitted to Eco Wave Power, by the Hydro-Mechanic Institute, has
concluded the experiments as following: “All floaters of Eco Wave Power Company have
proved their workability… According to the results of the tests, we have reached a
decision to recommend continuing the development of the green energy generation system
that is based on such principles, and enlarge the model to greater sizes.”

Therefore, it has been decided to move on to the following stage, which is the
construction and testing of the medium scale model, capable of producing 5KW from each
floater. The model will be composed of one “Wave Clapper” floater, and one “Power Wing”
floater, in the size of 2.5 meters each. The construction of the medium scale models has
already begun, and the testing will be taking place in early 2012.

As can be seen at Eco Wave Power [http://www.ecowavepower.com ]‘s website
(http://www.ecowavepower.com), the company has already secured funding for three ocean
energy generation models, the last of which will be a full-size commercial scale power
plant, with the ability to supply electricity to at least 1000 households.

Mr. David Leb, the founder of the company, has stated that: “We are a young and
innovative company in the field of ocean energy. As a result, we believe in a fast, yet
reliable, progress. Our competitors in the ocean energy sphere had spent 5 to 15 years
researching the ocean energy field, resulting with no commercial scale devices available
for sale and implementation. We want to be different. We want to be able to offer our
commercial scale devices within the shortest time frame, and for the most attractive
prices.”

As said by John Henry Newman: “Nothing would be done at all if a man waited until he
could do it so well that no one could find fault with it.”

Our system is being developed to produce electricity for a cheaper price than
traditional energy generation methods such as coal, gas and oil and also cheaper than
renewable energy generation methods such as wind or solar. This will be achieved by using
low cost materials, low maintenance prices and low maintenance periods, still
yielding-long life expectancies.

The Eco Wave Power wave energy converter is a simple and inexpensive technology to
harvest wave energy from high and low waves. It is designed to be simple and robust while
offering technical advantages over other renewable energy generation systems.
