November 7 (Renewables Now) - Australia's Carnegie Clean Energy Ltd (ASX:CCE) said Monday that it has initiated design and development activities with regard to the Albany wave energy project.

The project calls for Carnegie to install its CETO 6 wave energy converter device with a capacity of 1 MW off Albany during the 2019-2020 summer weather window. For the purpose, the company has now deployed a wave buoy at the specific offshore site to measure metocean conditions.

The list of project design and development activities now commenced includes consideration of environment, Native Title, planning consent, grid connection studies and approvals.

With the Albany project, the company seeks to demonstrate its CETO 6 technology for the first time, and to deliver common user infrastructure for other sector players. As previously announced, the Western Australian government awarded a AUD-15.75-million (USD 12m/EUR 10.4m) grant to Carnegie for the particular project.
