3MW iconic island Hybrid Energy Hub

EPS, in partnership with Toshiba, realized a hybrid storage system sired to Flinders Island’s microgrid for Hydro Tasmania, Australia’s largest producer of renewable energy. The utility is developing the “Flinders Island Hybrid Energy Hub” project that aims to increase the use of renewable energy on the island and to dramatically reduce the use of fossil fuels, which so far has been the only electrical energy source on the island. Thanks to the EPS system, the project, which combines renewables and energy storage, is intended to provide up to 65% of the island’s annual energy demand, signi cantly reducing CO2 emissions and the consumption of diesel fuel by more than 60%.
