luceo involved with Tasmanian microgrid project
We’re excited to be working with TasNetworks and the University of Technology Sydney on this project to explore the benefits of microgrids in areas with low solar resources in Tasmania.
While it is well known that Tasmania is a renewable powerhouse, solar uptake is low compared to the rest of Australia, and a number of remote communities still rely on diesel generators. This project will investigate whether establishing a microgrid, or upgrading existing off-grid technologies, would better meet the energy needs of regional and remote communities in the state.
pv magazine recently wrote a focused article on how this microgrid project will shine a spotlight on Tasmanian solar.
