Scope of works
Design and construction of a 7MW industrial-scale smart microgrid energy system at Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus in Geelong.
- Will be the largest solar system installed at a Australian University - 14.5 hectare solar energy generation farm
- Reduce carbon emissions by 12,000 tonnes per year and generate half of the University's energy needs on site
- The microgrid can be expanded to include research of other technologies such as hydrogen storage that could lead to hydrogen and electric vehicle integration
