Founded 1987, Carnegie Clean Energy Limited is an Australian, ASX-listed (ASX: CCE) wave energy technology developer and solar/battery microgrid project developer.
Carnegie is the 100% owner and developer of the CETO Wave Energy Technology intellectual property and is also 100% owner of leading Australian battery/solar microgrid Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) company Energy Made Clean (EMC).
EMC specialises in the delivery of mixed renewable energy microgrid projects to islands and remote and fringe of grid communities.
A microgrid is a discrete energy system made up of distributed energy sources that are capable of operating independently from the main power grid.
Renewable microgrids that combine multiple renewable energy generation sources (e.g. solar, wind and wave) take advantage of different renewable energy profiles at different times of day, and with different seasonal variation, to reduce the amount of energy storage and diesel generation required.
Renewable microgrids can be used to cut costs, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and in the case of high penetration renewable microgrids, allow communities to be more energy independent and more environmentally sustainable.
The precise mix of renewable sources, energy storage, fossil fuel and desalination will depend on the mix of renewable resources available locally and the needs of the customer.
Carnegie is the only company in the world to offer a combination of wave, solar, wind, storage and desalination via microgrids which are ideally suited to islands, off grid communities and fringe of grid locations.
