Can a Residential Development Exist Off the Grid?

The way Australians use electricity is changing. Renewable energy projects are likely to shape a range of different developments around the country, which may reduce homeowners’ dependence on the grid. Project managers have multiple resources at their disposal to construct sustainable housing developments. Solar power systems allow buildings to generate clean energy, while grid stability systems ensure this electricity […] ... Read More

Widespread Off-Grid Generation Expected to be Commonplace by 2020

The potential for off-grid renewable generation is set to continue growing in the coming years, as the technology to enable these changes becomes more widespread. In remote areas like outback and regional Australia, these generation solutions have the potential to provide a unique energy alternative for organisations. Recent research, conducted by the Alternative Energy Association, has […] ... Read More

Decentralised Generation Expected to See Further Growth

Centralised power production is continuing to be challenged by new energy strategies that are creating alternative solutions to power generation. Whether this involves the implementation of remote energy projects or complementing existing grid connections with on-site capacity, these systems have seen significant growth. Just one example that Australia has seen, is the recently announced University of […] ... Read More

New Plans to Take Whole Housing Developments Off the Grid

Battery storage technology is now a major growth area, with many organisations considering the possibility of using solar photovoltaic systems coupled with battery storage as an alternative to grid electricity. The impact of this has already been seen, with organisations like the University of Queensland investing in a solar plus battery storage system in order […] ... Read More

Solar Power Comes to the Pacific

The Pacific Islands face a variety of energy challenges – not least of all the high costs that come from relying on traditional fuels like diesel. While this might seem like a significant barrier to development, countries in the Pacific are working in partnership with international organisations to embrace solar power. This shift was recently […] ... Read More

Cloud tracking the key to effective solar power

As the amount of electricity generated by solar power increases across Australia, it is becoming increasingly important for businesses with large arrays of solar panels to understand how cloud cover is affecting their generation. In fact, research from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) found that cloud cover is one of the biggest […] ... Read More
