The proposal by the International Commission awarded the Energy Globe Foundation was the generator "Giant: wave energy": this experiment curated by Manlio Boito has been working for two years of this working prototype. The commission, headed by Maneka Gandhi, has evaluated the Giant winning, built-in stand-alone non-traditional, is located alongside the quay of St. Basil's Cathedral in Venice and consists of a buoy floating in a binary: the movement of the float with respect to its stationary guide drives the production of clean energy thanks to the motion of the waves. The energy is then produced by the perpetual motion of the tides themselves, indisputable renewable source.
