Stage 2 is hard. Stage 1 of the Wave Energy Prize took some time, but only required describing our wave energy converter (WEC) in words and pictures. In Stage 2, we have to prove the concept works, both physically with the 1/50th scale model and computationally with numerical modeling. And the physical and computational results have to match. All of which is doable, and constitutes a normal part of the design development process.
What make is hard is that there are only two of us and we only have three months.
