Waves, solar and storage world first for Australian island

Waves, solar and storage world first for Australian island

With limited land available, wave energy generation supported by a reliable microgrid of battery storage and solar PV could be a better, cheaper and more sustainable way to power remote coastal or island communities long-term. Credit: Carnegie Wave Energy An Australian island will soon host the world’s first renewable energy microgrid that integrates wave energy, solar PV and energy storage technologies. Moreover, the combination of technologies may also allow Garden Island, off the coast of Perth in Western Australia, to be powered completely and independently by renewables for certain periods. Perth-based firm Carnegie Wave Energy will design and build the AU$7.5 million (US$5.74 million) project, which will integrate 2MW of solar PV and a 2MW / 0.5MWh battery storage system with its CETO6 off-shore wave energy generation technology and existing desalination plant. The p...
