Albany to become wave energy innovation centre

The McGowan Government will drive Albany's place as a hub of renewable energy expertise and jobs, announcing successful applicants for grants for a wave energy technology project and research centre. Carnegie Clean Energy has been awarded a $15.75 million grant as a contribution towards a wave energy technology project. The grant will be used to install a large-scale wave energy converter device off the coast of Albany capable of producing about one megawatt of electrical power for export into the South West Interconnected System. Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan said, "The McGowan Government has seized the opportunity to leverage off the capabilities of WA's industry and universities and off our natural assets to create a new industry for our State."
