Napranum & Muralag Microgrids

Feasibility studies to increase energy security

As part of the EnergyConnect group, ITP will conduct a feasibility study for microgrids in Napranum and Muralug, both Indigenous Australian communities in Far North Queensland. Muralug is an island community in Torres Strait that has no community electricity service. Napranum seeks to transition from current reliance upon mining operations for its energy supply to self-generation.


This project will entail:

  • community engagement to identify options
  • assessment of load and demand profiles
  • design and assessment of options for Distributed Energy Resources
  • e-mobility assessment
  • identification of sustainable employment and funding options

Muralug and Napranum will provide opportunities for knowledge sharing of self-reliant, sustainable micro-grids for other communities.
