Carnegie goes to Chile
Wave and tidal energy developer Carnegie Wave has announced the completion of site assessments along the Chilean coast and has appointed a South American development partner.
Carnegie says its sit assessment builds on the work of a previous wave energy study, which found that if only 10 pc of the theoretical wave resource identified was extracted from the Chilean coast, this could deliver 17GW of capacity and transform the country’s electricity grid.
Carnegia has appointed local group Renewable Energy Development Enterprises (REDE) as its Chilean development partner. REDE is headed by Arturo Troncoso, a former Chilean navy officer with experience in the hydroelectric and mining industries.
Carnegie says its study had also identified a number of immediately viable sites for its CETO technology.
