Former BP Australasia head Greg Bourne joins Carnegie board

18 Feb 2011

Greg Bourne, former president of BP Australasia, has joined the board on Carnegie Wave Energy in a non-executive role.

After leaving BP, where he oversaw the expansion of its solar power business and held leadership roles in Latin America, Scotland and Australia, Bourne became CEO of the World Wide Fund for Nature in Australia.

He sits on a number of Australian government advisory committees and was once a special adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher for energy and transportation issues.

‘Having previously participated in the growth of renewables from within the energy industry and advocated for greater penetration of renewables from within the environmental movement, I am confident that Carnegie’s wave technology will prove to be a technical and commercial winner and will be adopted widely,’ Bourne said.

Clive Callister has also joined the board as a representative of Carnegie’s major shareholder, Renewable Energy Holdings, taking over the role from Mike Proffitt.

Earlier this month, the company announced that it had successfully commissioned an onshore test rig at its demonstration plant in Western Australia.

    Did you know that Romania has a technical solution with the highest efficiency to capture wave power?.
    Patent 108893 entitled Dynamic Engine for Sea Wave Energy Catching. A pioneering invention. It is estimated that “dynamic engine” has the ability to catching wave energy at a rate of over 80% while the other technical solutions known worldwide, are not able to capture wave energy with a higher percentage of about 10-15%.
