The Government of Norfolk Island is interested in installing renewable energy generation systems to offset the amount of diesel used for power generation, and commissioned a feasibility study. ITP Renewables investigated several wind and solar technologies, taking into consideration their suitability in a remote island situation. ITP Renewables submitted a shortlist of potential technologies for consideration, and recommended the large-scale integration of wind and concentrating PV on the diesel grid, with flywheel storage to maintain good power quality. The work included:

  • feasibility study investigating the limits of renewable energy penetration into Norfolk Island’s diesel grid
  • recommendation of the most appropriate technologies for reducing reliance on diesel for power generation while maintaining power quality and reliability.
