INSIGHT: Top five risks when building
Microgrids for greenfield developments,

Microgrids are a hot topic when it comes to sustainable energy supply for precincts. As a developer, you have the opportunity to get energy infrastructure right from day one.
The following case study is our take on the top five Microgrid risks, and how to avoid them. Download it, read it - and, whatever you do, don't make these mistakes.
MICROGRID CASE STUDY: Mixed-use development, Bendigo
The "Great Stupa" is the largest Buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere, and will be the anchor point for a new, mixed-use precinct of residential and commercial zones, requiring over 2MWh of electricity per day (in summer), with peaks in demand over 500kVa.
Learn how we worked with the development team to understand, assess, and optimise energy infrastructure, including the option of 100% self-sufficient energy supply.
