Our mission

to unlock wave energy cost-effectively

Founded in 2020

Dutch Wave Power was founded by Sten and Hans after 2 years of research and development, because they share the same personal goal: fight global warming and reduce CO2 emissions to keep this world safe!

In addition, Sten has extensive knowledge of wave dynamics and sea conditions.

Sten holds a master degree in Industrial Design Engineering at Technical University Delft specialized in Innovation Management.

During his studies, renewable energy was already key: building solar cars and graduating on the introduction of alternative fuels in the Netherlands. In his career Sten has held many positions within the sustainable energy sector and also coached start-ups.

Sten excels in building a community of specialists around us, helping to create the path for us to walk on.
