Martin Wickett of WITT Energy receives 2013 Gulfstream Navigator Award from Joe Lombardo of Gulfstream

The 2013 Gulfstream Navigator Award was given to the Solution that best demonstrated the greatest potential to LEAP TO ZERO+ with applicability across multiple industries generating positive impact on the environment, economies or health while respecting cultures around the world.

The WITT device is a technology capable of collecting chaotic motion and turning it into useable power. The WITT technology can use motion from Water, (sea, river and tidal), Human, Wind, Vehicle and Animal movement. It has a wide range of applications in the field of Natural Occurring Motional Energy (NOME), taking all motion, clockwise, anti-clockwise, back and forth and up and down, working on the same principle as the self winding watch (except that it does more) known as 6 degrees of motion.
