It’s vital that as we move to decarbonise our economy, we embrace every possible renewable energy opportunity.

Today we joined the Blue Economy CRC and UWA’s Wave Energy Research Centre to announce a new investment into wave energy R&D in Albany - a joint $4.8 project to deploy an “M4” energy device into King George Sound.

The project will prove up the wave suitability of King George Sound for smaller, floating wave energy devices for use by local industry - with a focus on renewable micro grid options for the rapidly-growing Great Southern aquaculture industry.

Importantly, the project will support Great Southern businesses, with more than 80 per cent of the Government contribution to the project being reinvested locally.

This Albany Wave Energy Demonstration proposal reinforces Albany and Western Australia as a leading research hub and test location as this important technology continues to emerge.
