Business park powers site with solar, battery, microgrid solution

Peel Business Park is a 1000-hectare industrial estate being developed in Nambeelup, WA. Due to the remoteness of the area, an existing power connection to the traditional grid did not exist — an onsite, behind-the-meter solar and battery solution was highlighted as the most cost-effective, reliable and green alternative. The renewable energy solution includes a 1.2 MW solar farm, incorporating over 2772 bifacial 440 W panels with a NEXTracker single-axis […]

Predicting power generation from wind and solar

Machine-learning technology is being used to accurately predict energy generation from wind and solar for integration with the national grid, as part of a collaboration between Monash University’s Grid Innovation Hub, Worley and Palisade Energy. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA)-funded project aims to provide wind and solar power generators with more accurate and reliable five-minute-ahead self-forecasting tools. By improving the accuracy of five-minute-ahead forecasts required by the National Electricity […]
