    The Wave Energy Prize kicked off in spring 2015 with 92 contestants submitting technical submissions, test plans and build plans.

    The plans culminated in the construction of 1/50th-scale models.

    In March, nine finalists were then chosen to build 1/20th-scale wave energy converter prototypes and test their devices at the US Navy’s Maneuvering and Seakeeping Basin in Maryland.
