BPS is a renewable energy company based in Sydney, Australia. Our bioWAVE product is a world-leading system for extraction of energy from ocean waves, allowing direct conversion to certifiable grid-quality electricity. The O-Drive product is a standardised self-contained power conversion module (or Power Take-Off module) for use in wave, tidal and wind energy projects. The bioSTREAM product is designed to harness the energy in tidal currents, without rotating blades, and is therefore expected to have minimal impacts on aquatic species.
