'Time points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Time 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 Time for the Planet<span class="brand">®</span> 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
51 assessments

Submitted to evaluations : After checking that an innovation is within the scope of the 20 issues Time for the Planet® targets and that it has reached a sufficient maturity, the innovation is being assessed.

Innovator in wave energy conversion.

Submission date March 09, 2022 Founders Maurizio Cippitelli Development location Falerone, United Kingdom

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.
