Carnegie Wave Energy Ltd., the Australian marine energy project developer, has won A$250,000 ($226,000) in government funding for a trial desalination project it aims to integrate with wave-power technology.
The National Centre of Excellence in Desalination selected the project from among 61 applicants and will provide half the funding for the A$500,000 project, Carnegie said in a statement on its website yesterday. Carnegie will provide the other half.
The project will be based at NCED headquarters at Rockingham, south of Perth, close to Carnegie’s Perth Wave Energy Project site, where Carnegie is testing technology for generating electricity. Carnegie eventually plans to integrate the two projects.
