The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS: RENEWABLE ENERGY -

THE Univer­sity of South­ern QLD’S (USQ) Sus­tain­able En­ergy So­lu­tion project has been recog­nised at the Clean En­ergy Coun­cil 2017 So­lar De­sign and In­stal­la­tion awards.

Matthew Lin­ney and Peter Cook, work­ing with Au­ton­o­mous En­ergy, took out the ‘Over 240 kw’ cat­e­gory at the awards an­nounced at the All-en­ergy Aus­tralia Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­fer­ence on 11 Oc­to­ber.

Their work, a 1.1MW so­lar carpark shading sys­tem at USQ Toowoomba, will help the Univer­sity re­duce its elec­tric­ity costs and cut down on its day­time grid elec­tric­ity con­sump­tion.

It will also sig­nif­i­cantly lower USQ’S to­tal car­bon emis­sions (by 20 per­cent).
