Learn about the projects undertaken by EDL to transition to 100% renewable energies for remote communities with 99.99% power reliabilty. EDL’s global innovation lead Stephanie Moroz will share learnings from our study into the technical and economic feasibility of transitioning existing fossil-fuelled power stations to 100% renewable energy. This study was supported in part by the Western Australian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund.

 

Who should attend

This webinar is for anyone interested in power generation, renewable energies and micro grids.

 

More information

Global distributed energy provider EDL has powered remote locations across Australia for more than 30 years, adapting and delivering tailored energy solutions to meet our customers’ needs. Most remote Australian communities and operations are not connected to the power grid and rely on diesel or gas penetration for their electricity.

In recent years, more and more remote towns and industries have been looking to make the transition to clean energy. Since 2017, EDL has delivered sustainable hybrid renewable solutions that help off-grid communities and operations reliably harness energy from abundant renewable resources. At the remote mining town of Coober Pedy in South Australia, our hybrid renewable microgrid supplies an average of more than 70% renewable energy with 99.99% reliability, while in Western Australia, our 56MW Agnew hybrid renewable microgrid powers Gold Fields’ Agnew Gold Mine with more than 50% renewable energy over the long term, without compromising power quality or reliability.
