Designed for placement in shallower, lower-velocity tidal waters, the THAWT (Transverse Horizontal Axis Water Turbine) harnesses said waves and converts them into electricity. While ocean turbines are nothing new, Kepler's concept varies in its ability to take advantage of wee baby waves at superficial depths, so it has nearly unlimited potential to produce clean energy, even in smaller surfs.
Unfortunately the THAWT is just a concept, but hopefully soon, we'll see this popping up in oceans across the world.
