Closed in 2001, Queensland’s Kidston Gold mine, is now a hybrid energy farm – solar plant and pumped storage hydro station. The site is about 270 km from Townsville, near Georgetown. Queensland is one of the forerunners of solar power uptake in the country. The state brought over a billion dollar of new investment and thousand of
South Australia is a forerunner in renewable energy technology when it comes to solar power adoption. It receives half of its electricity from wind and solar systems. A recent AEMO (Australian Energy Market Operator) report shows that about 9.2% of the electricity generated in 2016 were from small-scale rooftop PV systems. This increase in solar
Kerala State with large stretches of water bodies has huge potential for floating photovoltaic systems. Regen power is a consortia member undertaking the design, installation and commissioning of a 500 kWp Grid Interactive Floating Solar Power Plant for Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) in the Banasurasagar dam in Wayanad- the first of its kind in India.
With the current boom in solar power system uptake in Western Australia, it is worth wondering when this renewable energy option will shift to the automotive industry. Currently most electric vehicles make use of fuel cells, or hybrid engines. However, a solar car which draws its fuel as we drive through the road, would be
There are lot of technologies to look forward to, when it comes to economizing the residential solar system market. We have come a long way from the first solar panel modules which went online back in the early 2000s. Tesla unveiled solar roofs this year; and now researchers, Professor Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh and Dr Torben Daeneke,
Solar Industry The solar power and renewable energy industry as a whole is growing throughout the world. With countries like Australia, Germany and India setting ambitious renewable energy targets, solar power is our future. Initially we started with solar power systems less than 1kW. Now we have 5 and 6kW systems being widely used in
In this week’s update we have some exciting news coming from across the globe and Western Australia. We will be going through the ground breaking innovation of printed solar panels and one of Regen Power’s custom designed hybrid solar power system in Wagin. Printed Solar Panels As cheap as $10 per square metre, these printed
One of the most populous states in Australia, Queensland, with a coast stretching for over 7000 kilometers, is known for many things. Fast paced residential solar power adoption is one of these. Over the past few years the state has seen an accelerated solar power uptake by the homeowners. Queensland’s Combined Rooftop Power stations have
Grass Valley is a small town site about 110 km east of Perth, Western Australia in the Avon Valley area. Greg and Lizzie, a retired couple, decided to switch over to solar to power their modest home in the 100 acre property. Grid power was not available in the location and it would have costed
Single Wire Earth Return Distribution System Because of Australia’s unique position of having a vast terrain to serve with very low population densities, the cost of universal 3 phase distribution has been prohibitive. Hence much of rural Australia is supported by a Single Wire Earth Return (SWER) system to deliver 240V single phase power, or
5 kW Solar System – What is it? Perth is one of the most geographically suited cities in Australia for residential solar system uptake. Most solar power system installers in the city offers 3,5 and 6 kw of standard solar system packages. A 5 kw pv system that Regen Power offers comes with 20 panels,
As of 2017, more than 220,000 houses in Western Australia have solar panels installed. In the last quarter of 2016 Western Australia witnessed a 33% increase in residential rooftop solar panel installations. As reported by ABC, with suburbs like Armadale and Mandura taking the leadership role, this adoption rate has been the largest since the
Located in the Bass Strait, Flinders island is a Tasmanian community. This off-grid locality is completely dependant on its 3MW diesel power plant. This power station serves 6.7 GWh of annual consumer demand that peaks at 1.3 MW. Since early 2015, Hydro Tasmania, the state-owned utility, has been working on a project aimed at offsetting 60%
Australia’s Curtin University is now ranked 302 in the world on the University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP), up 33 places from 335 last year, and remains in ninth position nationally. This research based ranking system considers quality, quantity and impact of publications as well as international collaboration through six research indicators. Regen Power Managing
