The development and exploitation of new sources of clean energy that do not depend on traditional sources based on the use of fossil fuels, is the focus of this research, which starts with the optimization of an invention capable of transforming a reciprocating rectilinear motion into continuous circular motion in a very efficient way, to be used in the development of a Wave Energy Converter (WEC), capable of operating with low wave height and taking advantage of the oscillating movement of the waves both when rising, and when lowering, unlike other similar devices that harness it only in one way.
