Wave energy project developer in French Polynesia

To rely on the force of the waves to create local, carbon-free electricity,
sized to the needs of the territory and generating jobs for all the Polynesian archipelagos.

Carbon-free electricity serving the population

Local authorities

Coastal consumers

Energy self-sufficiency is paramount for island territories

Wave energy could offer a new perspective in the energy transition
by stabilising costs and making the territory more resilient.

Swell as an endless resource

Wave energy devices make it possible to exploit the power of the swell (wave created by the wind that propagates in the ocean) in order to produce 100% carbon-free electricity

We prioritize small systems, not or barely visible from the coast and adapted to local energy demand.

Co-constructing projects with local stakeholders

Are Uira develops wave energy projects with and for local actors by relying on Polynesian forces so that everyone can express their skills, their love for the ocean and their traditional values of sharing and benevolence.

The implementation of these projects requires the involvement of all the actors and stakeholders in the territory: local authorities, companies, fishermen, ports, industries, the academic and scientific world, associations and citizens.
