Report

Financial assessment tool to assist large energy consumers with energy contracting and clean energy options, as well as off-site renewables

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with utility-scale renewable energy plants allow medium to large-scale electricity consumers to meet a proportion of their load demand using renewable electricity. This allows them to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while at the same time reducing their exposure to...

Analysis of rooftop solar potential on Australian residential buildings

Deployment of rooftop photovoltaics (PV) is technically constrained by the availability of suitable roof space as well as by the ability of the distribution network to absorb exported generation. Although Australian rooftop PV installations are at record levels, deployment is uneven across different building types...
