Two goals were pursued at once: invest in business operations and put in the best tender possible.
The Tesla storage system is the first privately owned battery system to be engaging in the FCAS markets.
Maoneng has made a few quick turns during its short history. But the call to take part in the storage “boom cycle” has been heard loud and clear, CEO Morris Zhou tells EcoGeneration.
Solar is a good match for office buildings but PV is still something of a rarity in central business districts.
The company has delivered a stream of aged care facilities and has plenty more in the pipeline.
The system only covers half the roof because the client was keen to keep a simple, stylish street façade (which in no way suggests PV modules are unattractive!).
The weather can be volatile around The Pilbara and the designers had to deliver a system that could stand up to extreme high winds.
If networks could charge for localised use of their service, all customers in areas with high PV and community-scale batteries would pay lower bills … with no cost to the network, research shows.
NSW’s commitment to attract $80bn of investment in hydrogen, along with so many other plans around the country, will encourage electrolyser-makers around the world. Andrew Forrest can expect stiff competition.
The proposal for a factory in Gladstone is the most significant of Forrest’s plans for Fortescue Future Industries.
There has to be a way to push the cost of solar 70% lower, the ARENA chief says, as surely as there are effective methods to capture and store carbon. But exporting hydrogen…?
A 58% drop in public research, development and demonstration funding for renewable energy over the past five years is a trend that must be reversed, says the CEC.
ARENA’s Regional Australia Microgrid Pilots Program can improve the resilience and reliability of electricity supply in faraway places, says CEO Darren Miller.
A report from PwC shows that good intentions at the outset may sometimes obscure a misalignment between the way investors and developers think about clean energy partnerships.
Owners of renewable projects – batteries in particular – will have a better chance of managing the price they pay for insurance if they take a team approach.
There are already more than enough renewables projects proposed in NSW to go beyond 50%, but there are two key issues: transmission and storage.
By failing to decarbonise, businesses are putting even their most established relationships as suppliers (or those supplied to) at risk, writes Maximilian Stenning.
The fire in late July most likely resulted after a cooling system leak caused a short circuit in an electrical component in a Megapack.
Another batch of keen new Australian energy start-ups is set to be announced on October 26.
The call for stand-alone power systems to supply remote parts of the country will see diesel displaced in favour of solar and storage.
Panels are only one part of the offering to C&I customers who may have a bit to learn about their energy needs.
The Clean Energy Regulator has promised to pursue civil or criminal proceedings against solar installers who fail its standards for accreditation.
As the world slowly realises the primary task of the century is to decarbonise electricity generation, renewables workers will be in hot demand. The Bradman Recruitment-EcoGeneration Renewable Energy Salary Survey 2021 shows how they fare in Australia.
Leave a comment? Why not! Respondents to the Bradman Recruitment-EcoGeneration Renewable Energy Salary Survey 2021 had plenty to say about topics other than salary levels in the industry that bother them. Here are a few of the most interesting ones.
