Carnegie Wave to Receive R&D Funding (Australia)

Carnegie Wave to Receive R&D Funding (Australia)

Wave energy developer Carnegie Wave Energy Limited (ASX: CWE) announces that it expects to receive a cash payment under the new Australian Federal Government’s Research and Development Tax Incentive of approximately $1.1m in the coming weeks.

The new Research and Development (R&D) tax incentive replaced the R&D tax concession from 1 July 2011. The new legislation provides annual cash refunds (refundable tax offsets) of 45% on qualifying R&D expenditure benefiting eligible R&D entities such as Carnegie.

In the year ended 30 June 2012 Carnegie incurred qualifying R&D expenditure qualifying Carnegie for refundable tax offsets. Carnegie then successfully registered with AusIndustry, the administrator of the scheme and has now lodged the R&D tax return with the ATO. Carnegie is now poised to benefit from this new legislation through an expected $1.1m cash refund in the coming weeks. The cash refund is in addition to existing Government project grant funding.

Carnegie will continue to benefit from the new legislation in the current and future financial years and from 1 January 2014 Carnegie will become eligible for quarterly cash refunds. The new legislation also allows for R&D work to be carried out overseas under certain circumstances.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
