Carnegie Wave Energy’s offshore energy-generating infrastructure is purposefully inconspicuous. Its patented CETO buoys, which resemble large circular tanks, are tethered to an anchor in the seafloor and remain fully submerged, out of sight. Cornwall’s wave hub is billed as “the world’s largest and most technologically advanced site for the testing and development of offshore renewable energy technology”, and the funding is a significant boost for Carnegie’s global expansion plans. The project is to begin immediately, with commissioning set for 2018, followed by 12 months of operations.
