ALBANY WAVE ENERGY PROJECT — CARNEGIE CLEAN
ENERGY — TENDER PROCESS
144. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Minister for Regional Development:
I refer to the Labor government's decision to
terminate its agreement with Carnegie Clean Energy to deliver the wave energy project in Albany and the fact that
four of the five prospective proponents met the tender requirements,
including one that partially met the requirements. Why did the minister meet
with only Carnegie Clean Energy prior to the closure of the tender process and
not the other proponents?
Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN
I had no meetings with any of the proponents during the
tender process. It would not be appropriate for me to have meetings with them
during the tender process.
