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 for the benefit of 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. The assurance that future generations can continue to live together in good conditions.

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 of communities.

Co-constructing projects with local stakeholders

Are Uira develops wave energy projects with and for the good of comunities 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.

Wave Energy Atlas of French Polynesia

In 2023, Meteolien and Météo-France created the wave energy atlas of French Polynesia through 30-year modelling. Several indicators were studied:  average significant heights, average energy fluxes...

15 wave energy projects under study and a concept of 30 small units

A prospecting work has carried out on all 76 inhabited islands of the archipelago and is building a “pipeline” of wave energy projects. From this prospection emerged a selection of islands...
