Indigenous-led wave energy project in Canada chooses CalWave technology

A wave energy project is being developed in Yuquot, British Columbia (BC) by the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation (MMFN), with funding from TD Bank Group and the Clean Energy in Rural and Remote Communities Program under Natural Resources Canada. CalWave, a California-based developer of wave energy technologies, has been selected as the technology provider for this project.

The goal of the project is to harness the power of North Pacific waves to support a new microgrid and achieve energy self-sufficiency. This is an indigenous-led initiative that has the potential to serve as a model for similar projects along the North American Pacific Coast and globally. The project is currently in the feasibility and design stage, gathering information to help make decisions on full implementation.

Azar Kamran, CEO of MMFN, expressed his vision for Yuquot as a hub of innovation in community building and clean energy development. The village has a rich history as a trade hub and is now poised to once again become a center of excellence, setting examples for sustainable practices and technological innovation.
