The Monash Microgrid
We're building an on-site microgrid at Clayton. In the next 12 years, we'll eliminate our dependence on coal-fired energy sources.
Our microgrid will be versatile enough to receive and store energy from various renewable energy sources. We'll be able to control when and how to use our energy, which means we can reduce demand and strain on the network during peak times.
Our microgrid will also help stabilise the wider Melbourne grid, making it more resilient. This will benefit the broader community, especially during extreme weather events.
