The territory’s Household and Business Battery Scheme has an initial budget for $800,000 or 130 batteries.
The study will examine the degree to which the proposed PHES plant could unlock further renewable energy investment and the development of the proposed New England REZ.
Use of clean hydrogen can help address the toughest third of global greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, but only if net-zero emission goals and policies are set.
It’s all very well to decarbonise the electricity sector but a zealous pursuit of hydrogen might be disproportionate to requirements, write Graham Palmer and Josh Floyd.
If it’s 24-hour power we need, wind is way ahead of solar. But can these giant propellers fill most of the gap left by 23GW of coal power that needs to leave the NEM? Jeremy Chunn reports.
The Portland Wind Project in Victoria might be extra small but it proves the versatility of wind technology.
The 30-year agreement includes a 10-year initial term and two subsequent 10-year options.
As populations around the world deal with the psychological and economic effects of the covid-19 epidemic the transition to renewable energy is expected to slow to a halt.
The Clean Energy Council has called for federal and state responses to the covid-19 virus to support the continued rollout of rooftop solar and storage.
Researchers and business owners eager to cut energy waste are flummoxed by a paucity of decent data, writes Joe Wyndham. Without it, what hope is there for fixing the world’s problems?
PV investments rely on many variables and backsheet technology rates high among them. EcoGeneration visits the headquarters of Cybrid in China.
The audit program overseeing Victoria’s Solar Homes program has highlighted five main defects installers can easily get right.
Tinkerers are dropping electric donks into cool old cars to ensure motoring is not as dirty and never dull, writes Jeremy Chunn.
The introduction of the MC4-EVO-2 connector has created some uncertainty in the industry. James Patterson clears up the confusion.
An electrolyser that can separate hydrogen from wastewater could signal a new injection of clean energy for industrial applications.
The effects of voltage irregularities are more sorely felt by owners of PV systems the farther they are along a line, writes GSES.
The potential in connected microgrids of distributed energy resources can’t be overlooked much longer, writes Shaun Scallan.
NSW sets out clean energy and energy efficiency plan for 2030, on track to net zero emissions by 2050
The NSW government’s Net Zero Plan Stage 1 is a green light to clean energy investment in the state.
Demand response in a distributed, decentralised, decarbonised and digitalised NEM: much more than “negawatts”
Consumers big and small stand to gain as the full market power of energy demand response is unleashed, writes Alan Rai of the AEMC.
Since 2018 Jinkosolar has been running a comparative test of its bifacial module and monofacial PV technology on a variety of mounting types and ground types.
The NSW Government is backing community solar and storage projects with $15 million in funding.
Participants in the new demand response market created by the rule change will have similar obligations to large-scale energy generators.
It started as a simple suggestion to the AEMC, but the alignment of energy dispatch with financial settlement turned into a monster task that couldn’t stay in the too-hard basket any longer.
A company that helps homeowners source quotes from trusted PV installers has developed a tool that predicts a year’s bill impact.
