Carnegie Wave Energy Limited has been developing CETO wave energy technology for over 10 years and at a cost of $70 million. Carnegie is now in the construction phase of the Perth Wave Energy Project, a grid-connected CETO array off Garden Island, Western Australia. The Project will supply both power and desalinated potable water to the Australian Department of Defence. The Project is fully consented through a range of Federal, State and Local government permits and approvals, supported by a comprehensive community consultation program. This paper shares Carnegie’s experience of consenting this project and implications for future development.
