Carnegie Wave Energy (CWE) was presented with the Clean Energy Council Innovation Award for its CETO technology.
The winners of the Clean Energy Council Industry Awards were announced on July 15 at the Australian Clean Energy Summit Gala Dinner in Sydney, Australia.
Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said innovative new renewable energy projects continued to inspire the rest of the industry, and Carnegie’s success with its world-beating CETO technology over the last year was undeniable.
“Carnegie’s three-unit array with the Department of Defence in WA is currently the only grid-connected wave energy project in the world, and produces both renewable energy and desalinated water. The judges said it was an important and pioneering project with genuine commercial potential, and I couldn’t agree more,” he said.
