AEL New Technology

Alpine Energy is about to embark on a project to better understand the impact of battery storage technology on its own business and that of its end users. The long-term trial will be undertaken by Alpine Energy in partnership with local renewable energy specialists, Infratec Ltd.

Infratec and solarcity have completed the installation of a 170kW solar array on two government buildings in Funafuti, the capital of the tiny Pacific nation of Tuvalu. The 648 solar panels will deliver 5% of the island’s electricity requirements reducing diesel imports by 62,000 litres every year and saving the nation over $2 million across the lifetime of the system.

Bamyan Milestone

The Bamyan Renewable Energy Project (BREP) has exceeded its goal of 2,490 customer connections with this weeks’ connection of the Bamyan New City 400kW solar PV array to the Bamyan Bazaar. This extension supplies an additional 320 customers with electricity, bring the total number of connected customers to 2500.

Infratec and solarcity today announced that they have been awarded a $780k contract to build a total of 170kW of solar photovoltaic arrays across two Government owned buildings in Funafuti, Tuvalu.

On Wednesday 15th October 2014, the 960kW ‘Te Mana o Te Ra’ solar farm was switched on by Cook Islands’ Prime Minister Henry Puna and New Zealand High Commissioner Joanna Kempkers. At a ceremony held between the rows of solar panels that have been installed at Rarotonga International Airport, Prime Minister Henry Puna spoke of his Government’s commitment to renewable energy, and how the solar plant contributes to the goal of having the Cook Islands 100 per cent powered by renewable energy by 2020.

The Infratec team turned up in force to the Pacific Energy Summit on 24-26 March in Auckland, an event co-hosted by the New Zealand Government and the European Union. The aim of the summit was to move Pacific nations closer to achieving 50% of their electricity from renewable energy sources and reduce their reliance on expensive diesel fuel for power generation.

Bamyan Project

Two New Zealand companies have won an $18.6 million government contract to build a sustainable electricity network for people living in the Bamyan province of Afghanistan. Called the Bamyan Renewable Energy Project, it will be funded by the New Zealand Government’s international aid and development programme with the purpose of leaving behind the “gift” of an off-grid, sustainable power supply to serve 2,490 homes in Bamyan that are currently without electricity.
