9:40 AM Lord Howe Island: Leveraging DER and Advancements In Technology To Drastically Reduce Carbon Dependency On The World Heritage Site

Just voted the 5th most desirable location to travel by Lonely Planet 2020, Lord Howe Island is a World Heritage island which advocates a sustainable approach to tourism. As an islanded grid 600 km offshore they have been on a journey to reduce carbon dependency and protect the marine and terrestrial biodiversity of the island. Here they share the journey to constructing the new grid and the technical capability needed.

  • Moving from diesel dependency to renewable generation
  • Projections to surpass 67% carbon reduction in diesel usage
  • Increased capability: Implementing solar technology and battery storage
  • Funding and stakeholder involvement, education and awareness

12:40 PM Meet the Buyers: The Opportunities Offered by the Decentralisation of the Electricity Sector and the Growth of Microgrids

This panel will bring together microgrid consumers, external to the energy industry, to share how they are experimenting with the decentralised grid and leveraging DER and microgrids to respond to environmental, financial and customer centred demands.
