We are working with developer Clean Energy Prospector (Cepro) on their innovative community microgrid projects. Cepro plan, construct and operate fully managed community microgrids that support maximised installations of onsite renewables in both the new build and retrofit housing markets.
A typical project sees a private electric microgrid installed for a small community, behind the grid supply point. Batteries are also installed to store rooftop generated electricity not consumed at time of generation, whilst communal ground source heat pumps provide heat to the houses.
We have worked with Cepro to develop the funding models, the commercial structuring and the suite of contracts for project delivery. We look forward to continue to work with the client to further scale the projects as a template for decentralised, decarbonised and democratised energy solutions.
