    any news on commercial projects ?

    after proven technology a 500MW project should be started ?

    or do the people on this board think that's too optimistic?

    cash I think will last for 4 to 5 years, while not that much is needed on research and prototypes

      La Réunion Wave Energy Project
      The Réunion Island project is a Joint Venture (JV) project between Carnegie and EDF Energies Nouvelles. The project will initially consist of the deployment of a single, autonomous commercial scale unit (stage 1) which will be followed by a 2MW plant (stage 2) and a further expansion of the project to a nominal 15MW installed capacity (stage 3). Stage 1 of the project has been awarded $5M of French Government funding.[when?]
      [edit]Ireland Wave Energy Project
      Carnegie has signed a formal funding and collaboration agreement[when?] with the Irish Government's Sustainable Energy Association (SEAI) for a €150,000 project to evaluate potential CETO wave sites in Ireland and develop a site specific conceptual design. The project is 50% funded by the SEAI and 50% by Carnegie and forms the first phase of detailed design for a potential 5MW commercial demonstration project in Irish waters. The project was underway in 2011 and is being managed through Carnegie's Irish subsidiary, CETO Wave Energy Ireland Limited.[3]
