Who is our Customer?
Wedge Global has identified its beachhead market (BHM) as islands and mini-grids. The main reason for that is the clear value proposition for many coastal communities that rely on expensive electricity (critical pain point) produced by diesel generators.
$ Billon Market
Currently, Total Addressable Market (TAM) for BHM is estimated roughly $36,250,000 per year. It is expected a double digit compound annual growth rate from 2016 to 2030 in order to realize its potential estimated in a multibillion market per year.
What can we do for our customer?
High electricity prices and an overreliance on imported oil make are common features in many islands and coastal communities. The Canary Islands electricity costs from Diesel generators ranges from roughly 15 c€/kWh to 25 c€/kWh and there are more than 500MW of diesel generators in the Islands.
Several energy sources can be used, but they have to deal with some constraints related to land usage and visual impact (solar and wind) and resource availability for tidal.
Wedge W1 device is our Minimum Viable Business Product (MVBP)
Wedge device, called W1 – industrial scale wave energy converter, has been continuously being tested in the Atlantic Ocean since January 2014.

“Try to understand a movie without hearing, without seeing. This is the situation in which there are more than 2 million people with audiovisual disabilities in Spain, with limited access to film and television.
The cinemas are spaces of cultural leisure of great consumption where they assiduously attend all type of families and segments of population. However, such a routine action as attending the last film premiere or watching a movie at home can become a complicated task for those who suffer some kind of audiovisual disability due to the limited availability of accessibility systems available in the market.
People with visual impairment need the support of other people who describe the image, while people with hearing impairment depend on family members and friends to interpret the images, creating annoying murmurs and misunderstandings. Traditional systems of accessibility generate discomfort and sometimes rejection in people without disabilities, which makes it difficult to integrate these groups.
In 2013, WhatsCine emerged, in collaboration with the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid, to alleviate this deficit and improve access options to the mass culture of this sector of the population – close to 5% of the total census in Spain – And with the commitment to create an environment appropriate to their needs.
This is how the first technology capable of bringing film and television to people with audiovisual disabilities at no additional cost to them, through a unique software in the world, allows the integration of three systems of accessibility in the same application:
• Audiodescription (visual impairment).
• Adapted subtitling (hearing impairment).
• Sign language (hearing impairment).
Its inclusive technology, which allows cinema and television to enjoy these groups without interfering with other viewers, has changed the way people with audiovisual disabilities access the contents of film and television.
It is currently available in Spain, in more than 500 exhibition halls, and on the Movistar + platform, through the WhatsCine-owned Movistar + 5S app.
Through a free application for the user, available on iOS and Android, each user enters the application through their own terminal and according to their disability choose the accessibility that they want to use.
Recognized in 2015 with Reina Letizia Award for Accessibility Technology and in 2016 with the Innovation and Creation Antonio Magariños Award and the App for All Award in the Best App category, it has opened a new headquarters in Miami in April 2017, (Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay) and the United States, where about 74.5 million people with audiovisual disabilities live .
The challenge is to break down the barriers and make known a product that offers great social support to people who often feel isolated and different due to their disability, either visual or auditory, total or partial. The objective is to provide this service to all people with audiovisual disabilities so that the experience is as close as possible to that of a person who sees or hears.
