Ocean Power Technologies OPT team is developing a new power generating technology that focuses on the generation of electrical power from the flow energy of water in streams, currents, or pipes. The generating systems that are developed will be eel-like structures made from piezoelectric polymers. The program will develop an energy harvesting unit to supply electrical power that enables small military devices to have an indefinite life when operating in a site with a flowing water energy resource.
