Founder Profile

Laminar Scientific Founder Narayan Iyer on the Power of Wave Energy

Solar energy is often in the spotlight for being one of the cheapest forms of energy available. But wave energy -- though less well-known -- is also a promising form of renewable energy. It’s easy to estimate how much energy waves will generate, and wave energy is dependably available throughout the year.

Laminar Scientific is developing a patent-pending nearshore wave energy solution. The company’s technology aims to combat the challenges usually associated with collecting wave energy, including multi-directional energy and costly maintenance. We reached out to founder and CEO Narayan Iyer to hear more about the company’s plans and the need for a truly international approach for achieving sustainability.
