Cornwall's Wave Hub energy project handed to government
Cornwall's Wave Hub has been officially been taken over by the government.
The £42m project, designed to test wave energy machines off the coast of Hayle, was originally set up by the South West Regional Development Agency.
As the agency is being wound up, the wave energy scheme is being adopted by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.
It is hoped the first companies will hook their energy-from-wave devices to the hub later this year.
