Clean power developer Carnegie Corporation says more than a third of Australia’s base-load power needs could be economically generated by wave technology, according to a report commissioned by the company. The report, compiled by RPS MetOcean, says that Australia has a potential near-shore wave energy resource of about 171,000 megawatts (MW) – four times the country’s total installed power generation capacity, Carnegie said.
