AIE Sydney | Role of Microgrids in Australia’s Energy Future
Date: Mon 16 Sep 2019 @ 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Microgrids are fast emerging in various forms, for both grid-connected and off-grid sites, to enable wider integration of variable energy and provide local control of electricity generation and consumption.
The three presentations will cover the development of the Byron Bay Microgrid in Northern NSW, insights from the Monash Microgrid at Clayton Campus in Melbourne, and plans for the recently announced ARENA funded Agnew Gold Mine hybrid microgrid project in WA.
Find out how three different Australian microgrids are designed to:
- Investigate the impact of renewable energy and peer-to-peer trading on the grid
- Create 100% renewable grid interactive precincts plus reduce the demand on the network during peak times
- Demonstrate the benefits of a large hybrid off-grid microgrid in the mining sector in Australia.
A panel discussion following the presentations will explore the opportunities for microgrids to support Australia’s fast changing energy mix.
Join us for an evening of creative thinking about renewables, resources and resiliency.
