VISION

There is a growing need for new technology and processes to accelerate the transition away from a high-consumption, carbon-based economy.

We think about Ecomerit’s long-term direction in the context of the planet’s population growth, the burden on nature’s systems, and the depletion of natural resources, which create tension in our global social and economic fabric.

Demonstration

WHAT WE DO

We innovate and invent; we vet third-party technologies. We use systematic technical and economic analysis in selecting projects we aim to advance to commercial-ready status.

SEAWELL

Abundant freshwater. SeaWell provides easy-to-install, modular floating, reverse osmosis buoys for conversion of seawater to freshwater directly from the ocean.

The technology is ocean-friendly, powered by onshore renewable energy (and soon by marine renewables) virtually eliminating carbon emissions.

AQUANTIS

Utility-scale electric power from ocean currents. Aquantis Turbines are a breakthrough in marine renewable energy technology, which converts the kinetic energy of either gyre or tidal ocean currents to electric power for submarine transmission to the land-based power grid. The Turbines operate at high efficiency, generating clean, predictable utility-scale electricity.

FLOATER

Floating platform turbine producing electricity while removing CO2 from the atmosphere.  Reliable and affordable water reduces the human and environmental stress caused by water scarcity. SeaWell provides easy-to-install, modular floating, reverse osmosis buoys for conversion of seawater to freshwater directly from the ocean.

The technology is ocean-friendly, powered by onshore renewable energy (and soon by marine renewables) virtually eliminating carbon emissions.

CENTIPOD

Renewable energy from ocean waves. Ocean energy holds vast potential to diversify the renewable energy mix, improving the predictability of energy and smoothing grid production. Centipod creates the technology capable of realizing this potential.

ZLUZ

ZLUZ is the first-ever high-efficiency water heating skylight. A 3 in 1 system which passes the natural daylight, uses the solar energy for hot water, and includes warm nighttime LED lighting with a remote dimmer.

DATA MARINE

Need something here. The multi-megawatt Centipod system is based on a stable floating platform, which is actively yawed to wave front exposure. As waves travel across the Centipod, pods rise and fall generating electricity. Centipod provides a viable method for delivery of competitively priced, utility-scale power to high-population coastal markets.

WHY ECOMERIT

We look for emerging products and processes that may be economically viable now, and if they are not, how do you get them to competitiveness?
