In mid-February, shares soared after the company announced a partenership with Lockheed Martin (LMT) to develop the world's largest project harnessing wave energy. Based off the coast of Victoria, Australia, the project will use Ocean Power's technology which converts wave energy into clean energy via the bobbing movement of a buoy. The mechanical energy produced drives an electrical generator, which transmits power through an underwater cable.
The project is due for completion as early as 2018.
Since the beginning of the year, the stock is up 184.3%.
