Is there any environmental impact?

No. The pWEC technology is designed to actually enhance the marine environment by allowing the formation of an artificial reef on the ocean floor. Marine life quickly adapt to the presence of the pWEC allowing for the growth of marine colonies. Unlike turbines which can be very destructive for any ocean life in the near vicinity, the pWEC has few moving parts below the surface of the ocean and thus, do not impact on marine animals.
