Wave Star Energy, a fledgling Danish development company, is preparing to commercialise wave power systems for electricity production in 4-5 years. Per Resen Steenstrup, the inventor of the systems says that wave power could become the great energy source of the future. The head of Danfoss, one of Denmark's largest industrial groups, Jørgen Mads Clausen, along with others, have invested DKK 20 m (USD 3.2 m) in Wave Star Energy.

Jørgen Mads Clausen comments: "Wave energy systems have great potential, and there is an enormous amount of energy that can be tapped from the world's oceans. The project has my warm support. If we are lucky with our systems, it could become an extremely lucrative industry." Jørgen Mads Clausen is chairman of the board of Wave Star Energy.

In the near future, Wave Star Energy will start testing its first pilot-scale wave power system in Denmark. In 2008 the company plans to test a 500 kW system which is planned to be moved subsequently to a wind turbine park off the west Jutland coast, where the wave power system will be connected to the land transmission cable from the wind turbine park. The systems are designed to operate offshore in depths of between 7 and 30 metres, and contain all the necessary controls for direct connection to the national grid. The news was reported by national daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
