With an intention to support the wave-powered seawater desalination pilot project planned by Carnegie Wave Energy Ltd the Western Australia's Water Corporation has signed a cooperation contract.
The pilot, which develops part of Carnegie's Perth Wave Energy Project, will be the initial wave-powered desalination project in the world.
Carnegie's wave-powered seawater desalination technology offers a novel and promising approach to achieving desalinated freshwater with zero greenhouse gas emissions.
Renewable energy proponents' longtime dream of harnessing the power of the world's oceans became a reality this fall when Portugal brought online the first commercial wave-powered
electricity generating station.

SRI International, an independent nonprofit research and development organization, has deployed and is currently testing a prototype buoy-mounted, ocean wave-powered generator off the coast of Florida in the Tampa Bay.
a Japanese company focused on development and deployment of wave-powered generators worldwide.
This announcement was welcomed by Carnegie Corporation, which has been lobbying state and federal governments to use wave-powered
desalination to deal with water shortages.
commercial electricity supplier on Islay will be the first in the world to feed into a national grid when it opens next week.
What may be the world's first wave-powered station was switched on earlier this month at Tostestallen in Norway.
The station includes two different wave-powered generators.
