MONASH UNIVERSITY AUSTRALIA

LARGE MICROGRID WITH HYBRID STORAGE SYSTEM ACHIEVES ENERGY EFFICIENCY AS UNIVERSITY COMMITS TO NET ZERO EMMISSIONS TARGET

THE CHALLENGE

Monash University has the inspirational goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2030. Their Net Zero initiative aims to make the universities electricity consumption more sustainable in order to achieve a completely independent power supply using solely renewable energy.

As part of their Net Zero initiate the university took the initial steps to maximise the energy efficiency of it's lighting systems and buildings. Additionally the university installed a cumulative total of 2MW of PV on campus.

In a drive for further sustainability and efficiency the system required a storage solution.

THE SOLUTION

 

The first of it's kind hybrid storage system combining Tesvolt lithium-ion batteries and Vanadium redox flow battery system which will sit at the centre of the universities energy microgrid.

Unlimited Energy Australia provided the concept design, project management, installation and commissioning for this project which is Australia's largest commercial behind-the-meter battery storage system.
