PIPO Systems is a pioneer in the development of marine wave energy conversion to useful and sustainable energy and its application to seawater desalination without the need of external power consumption or the generation of CO2 emissions.




We aspire to be leaders in energy innovation, to provide sustainable energy solutions while respecting the environment and creating value, thus actively contributing to the general social good.

Being a leader in development and sustainability requires making innovation a priority. For this reason PIPO Systems works continually in R+D+I. It is the core of our business.
Our goal is to consolidate our position as technology leaders in the harnessing of ocean wave energy.
Continuous evolution toward the competitive viability of real energy solutions.
To make APC-PISYS, a technology created in Spain, an international point of reference in the field of generation and consumption of large-scale ocean wave energy.
To foster the creation of direct and indirect employment, to encourage research and investment in R + D + I, and to increase the technological and innovative capabilities of companies.
To promote a source of clean and constant renewable energy, to generate resources in isolated coastal areas, with minimal detrimental impact.
To provide electricity to the power grid and to large-scale electricity consumers on land or sea, such as desalination plants, aquaculture farms, etc.


The projections for energy consumption in Europe, which are anticipated to increase by 1 to 2% per year, combined with the continued depletion of conventional resources and increased costs of production, create a situation of a growing and worrying dependence on external energy supplies.

Furthermore the European Commission has set a target of doubling the share of renewable energy in overall energy consumption, to increase from 6% in 1997 to 12% in 2010 and to continue to grow to 20% in 2020. Against this background, the market potential of the most powerful and profitable renewable energy sources must be explored.

Offshore marine wave energy presents a potential supply that is notable for its high rate of multiple conversions and its global availability, given that most countries have a coastline whose high energy waves could be harnessed without damaging the environment or adulterating the shoreline landscape.
The global potential of wave power is 10 terawatts (Source: The Engineering Business Ltd, 2003). Potential European wave energy: 120-190 terawatt hours per year offshore and 36-46 terawatt hours near-shore (Source: ATLAS Project, EU DG XVII, December, 1997).
