S.D.E. Energy Ltd. is a Tel Aviv, Israel manufacturer and marketer of Sea Wave Power Plants - utilizing sea wave energy to produce electricity economically, and in an environmentally-friendly manner claiming that their system can generate electricity for 2 cents per kWh -- nearly half of what coal or natural gas power plants can produce it for.Basically, the buoys are placed on a breakwater and they move up and down, according to the frequency of sea waves. The buoys' movement press a hydraulic liquid, which is regulated by systems that convert the energy to circular systems that operate an electric generator.The buoys, which make 10% of the system, are placed in the water, and the rest of the whole system, which makes 90%, is set on land with the option being located on up to 500 meters from sea shore. In the event of storms, the system is easily accessible for technical service. Additionlly, the buoys are neutralized and laid down on the jetty or the shore.

Nov. 2006

S.D.E.'s development and testing has been approved and partially financed by the Chief Scientist of Israel. Currently, the company is in late stage negotiations for the sale of power plants, with a projected value of several billion dollars. S.D.E. is seeking capital investments to construct the plant in Israel, to meet current demand for power plants using S.D.E.'s technology, and for current and future marketing efforts worldwide for this technology. "" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">; padding-right: 13px; background-position: 100% 50%; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;" title="; rel="nofollow">[1]


According to "" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">; padding-right: 13px; background-position: 100% 50%; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;" title="; rel="nofollow">Tree Hugger, SDE is set to build the first wave energy harvesting power plant of its kind in Sri Lanka. According to a company press release, S.D.E. recently began talks with Sri Lankan officials to construct and install a 200 MW power plant at an estimated cost of $130 million. If negotiations are successful, they say, the plant will be the first of its kind to produce electricity at a commercial quantity from sea waves. "" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">; padding-right: 13px; background-position: 100% 50%; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;" title="; rel="nofollow">[2]


How it Works

Shmuel Ovadia, Managing Director of SDE Energy, said: "Our system is built on one side of wave gatherers, which can also serve as breakers. It is composed of a system of channels of hydraulic oil, whereby the rise of the pistons creates pressure on the hydraulic oil. The hydraulic oil is accumulated in a pressurized container and is then directed toward a hydraulic motor. This energy turns an electrical generator, which produces electricity."

A method of using sea wave motion to generate hydraulic pressure, which is then transformed into electricity. The system takes advantage of the wave's speed, height, depth, rise and fall, and the flow beneath the approaching wave, thus producing energy more efficiently and cheaper than both other sea-wave and conventional technologies which require vast amounts of land space. The system has a potential to produce a net of 38kWh per meter of beachfront occupied (worldwide average).


Q. How does the wave interface portion adjust for tide level? 

Our system has a hydraulic mechanism that lifts and lowers the buoys automatically, according to a tide level of up to 5 meters.

Q. How does the wave interface portion couple to hydraulics securely in a violent environment? 

The method we offer is the best in the world and can withstand very high pressures. We have built 8 models in Jaffa port, near Tel Aviv, in sea environment of 8 meter waves.

Q. Would a tsunami destroy the installation? What about hurricane/cyclone storm surge? 

In the event of a tsunami/hurricane/cyclone, the buoys are lifted automatically and placed on their back near the beach, until the storm is over.

Q. What kind of opposition will the visual element create? How much will this limit installations? 

Our system is the only one in the world, in which the buoys are placed on the sea water level and they make only 10% of the whole complex. The rest 90% of the system – the generators, hydraulics and automation – is located on the beach in an approximate distance of 500 meters from sea front.

Q. How are you going to turn highly irregular wave action into a stable energy source? 

We use hydro-pneumatic batteries, which regulate the circular movement. The important thing is to keep the movement of the generator regular.

Manufacturing Cost

According to SDE:

Manufacturing cost for a 1MW system is from US$ 650K and production cost is the lowest in the market. The erection cost of a 1MW S.D.E. station is from $650,000 while a comparable station costs $1,500,000 from coal, $900,000 from natural gas, $1,500,000 from solar sources, and $3,000,000 from wind. Using S.D.E. technology, production of electricity is 2 cents, compared to 3 cents from coal, 3.5 cents from natural gas, 12 cents from solar energy (when is that without subsidies?), and 3.6 cents from wind.


Stage of Development

According to "" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">; padding-right: 13px; background-position: 100% 50%; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;" title="; rel="nofollow">The Energy Blog, dated Nov. 2006:


Eight energy modules have been built and tested. A full-scale oceanfront model was operated in Israel and produced 40 kW/h for 8 months. According to an undated presentation, available on their website, the next step in their development may be:


According to SDE the expected annual revenue from a 1000MW power plant operating at 90%, with output 75% of the year is approx. $310 Million, and net profit of around $160 Million. The system is designed to return the initial investment within three years.

SDE wave energy technology was developed to provide protection to marinas, beaches, and private property subject to destructive or annoying wave / wake forces together with the utilization of wave energy. SDE wave energy proposes to use the technology as a "wave filter" in order to reduce the damaging effect of waves on the coast and convert it to energy. The construction has hydrodynamic and practical advantages as compared to "normal" breakwaters. "" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">; padding-right: 13px; background-position: 100% 50%; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;" title="; rel="nofollow">[3]

WERPO offers a full consultancy service including wide ranging feasibility studies. Although WERPO’s power generation units are standardized to a large extent, some planning and location specific project management will be required to maximize the use of the available resource.


WERPO. has developed a unique technology for generating electricity from waves, protected by patents registered in Israel and around the world.

Our Technology


WERPO’s technology is based on the utilization of sea waves to yield hydraulic pressure that produces electricity, while exploiting the full potential of wave speed, height, depth, rise and fall, and currents beneath the surface of the water.


WERPO’s unique technology is the best choice in renewable energy systems due to the high energy efficiency, lower cost for power generation and the fact that only 10% of the system is submerged in the water – this reduces the overall risk to the system and lowers maintenance costs substantially.


The system is made up of modular components which require little space on land and can be implemented in any terrain easily. This allows for quick implementation since the system can begin producing energy before the final construction stages.


Usually the system is stationed on wave breakers in no swimming, no fishing and no boating zones so that it does not interfere with the population’s enjoyment of a marine source. However, this system is suitable for all types of waves and climate conditions. The system begins to produce electricity from a wave height of ~60 cm.


In addition the system can be connected to an existing power grid with only minor adjustments.




Coal and nuclear power stations are on the verge of closing while the world demand for energy is high and continuing to grow. Fuel prices are soaring, and will continue to do so.


Global warming and pollution, which are a result of an incineration of fossil fuels, brought on a global search for alternative energy sources that are clean with low energy manufacturing costs.


While wind and solar energy have proven to be not efficient or cost effective energy solutions, wave energy still holds much potential.


Scientists from around the world claim that using 1% of wave’s energy can provide 500 times the world energy consumption.

THE WERPO SOLUTION – Advantages of the Technology


Environmentally friendly – the system produces clean energy without detrimental effects to the environment.

In the last few years we are witnessing a significant rise in demand for green and renewable energy systems. In light of global warming, desertification, typhoons, floods and other disasters, all around the world people have come to understand that we can no longer continue producing energy by contaminating the environment and that there's an urgent and essential need to develop sustainable alternatives.

Sea wave energy is the only solution left for China - solar energy has been proven as not economical and wind energy is not a possibility as weather conditions would damage the wind turbines severely. These same harsh weather conditions only benefit production of energy from sea waves, as higher waves store more energy.

The energy market has two elements - financial and ecological. Fuel prices have gone up in the past couple of years by about 1000% and OPEC countries are absorbing all the cash reserves. The results of this can be seen in the financial crises in Europe and the US, yet conventional power stations keep being erected to keep up with the high demand for power. Not only are these plants not aiding the economy they are detrimental to the environment. Fuel burning pollutes the air and the harmful effects of this are experienced in Chinaevery day. Therefore, to our knowledge, the government decided to cut down on fuel burning and dismantle 30% of the conventional power plants. However, this decision, without a proper recourse to supply the lost power will end up doing more harm as local businesses and the like will use private generators that have no filters and so harm the environment even more. This is why we believe introducing sea wave technology is the only solution left for China today. 

WERPO, having received the rights for all of SDE Ltd's technology, property, know-how, IP (patents and so on), contracts and subsidiaries, has thus taken control of SDE's endeavors in China. SDE's patent in China has been authorized this year, patent nu. ZL 200980000308.3 and this in addition to further work by SDE in China on a pilot project as part of a larger project with the Chinese government.

SDE shipped to China a second power plant producing electricity from sea waves, according to an agreement of $0.8M. A new agreement of $1.2M was signed under which SDE will construct two additional power plants of 500kW each. The power plant was built inIsrael except of the buoys that will be built in China by the local company owned by the partnership and the Chinese government as a main share holder. The power plant will be installed in Hainan Island, which is the biggest island in China, located 30 km fromGuangdong region. The power plant is capable of producing 150kW per hour comparing to the next power plant that will be installed on this island, producing 500kW per hour, which is already under construction in Israel.    

This 150 kW power plant would be the 12th power plant SDE is constructing in total, and the second one that will be installed in Chinawith local Chinese partners. The power plant was developed and engineered in an environmentally friendly manner, beside to the fact that electricity is produced without any Environmental pollution.

The Company also has a large module of its unique system in its factory in Israel that stimulates wave movement and electricity production using the hydro-pneumatic system.

S.D.E.'s technology is based on the utilization of sea waves' rise and fall to yield hydraulic pressure that produces electricity, while exploiting the full potential of wave speed, height, depth and currents beneath the surface of the water. With this technology, chosen number 1 in its field by an independent team of scientists form PESWiki and also as one of the top 100 renewable energies (, we can provide the best solution for the current energy crisis.  

Board of Directors

Yigal Shusteri shall act as the CEO. He was trained as an electrical engineer and has had previous experience managing a public company on the NASDAQ market. He is an active participant in the development of energy products around the world.

Daniel Naimi will take up the role of director and he is an expert in hydraulics, electronic control and computerized systems and his primary objective is capitalizing on SDE Ltd's existing operations and extensively promoting SDE's unique sea wave technology through WERPO.

Advisory Committee

Shmuel Ovadia is the inventor of the hydro-pneumatic technology and former CEO of SDE. He, along with Mr Naimi, successfully transferred all the rights, contracts and subsidiaries from SDE to Wave Electricity Renewable Power Ocean.

Uri Ben-Noon was the former CEO of the Israeli Electric Company (IEC) and the Chairman and CEO of the chemical conglomerate Dead Sea Works Ltd.
Israeli Electric Company
 is the main supplier of electrical power in Israel. IEC builds, maintains and operates power generation stations, sub-stations, as well as the transmission and distribution networks.The company is the sole integrated electric utility in the State of Israel and generates, transmits and distributes substantially all the electricity used in the State of Israel. The State of Israel owns approximately 99.85% of the Company.



Rockefellers to switch investments to 'clean energy' 

The Rockefeller Brothers Fund is joining a coalition of philanthropists pledging to rid themselves of more than $50bn (£31bn) in fossil fuel assets.

SDE/WERPO mentioned for potential 10 GIGAWATT plant that could be worth BILLIONS OF DOLLARS $$$$$$$$

"SDE says that it “holds Letters of Intent and orders from state leaders and electric companies in an approximate amount of US $3 billion dollars.”
