Abstract
Veryst Engineering will design and prototype a submergeable energy harvesting device capable of generating 10 to 20 Watts for years. The device is based on a Veryst technology using stored energy capture and release. The technology can harvest power from alternating forces in mooring lines using encapsulated designs. The technology has been proven on a subWatt level. This project will address the technical issues of scaling to a higher power output.
