Good Synergy makes waves in projects for electricity.

Western Australia's largest peak body for enterprises across the sustainable energy sector has welcomed an agreement between from Synergy and Carnegie Corporation that will create new renewable energy projects in Western Australia.

Western Australia's largest peak body for enterprises across the sustainable energy sector has welcomed an agreement between from Synergy and Carnegie Corporation that will create new renewable energy projects in Western Australia.


"Synergy's support for this new renewable energy venture, established through a Memorandum of Understanding with wave energy developer Carnegie Corporation, is an example of the kind of business backing needed to get renewable energy projects delivering emissions-free energy to Western Australians," says Dr Ray Wills, Chief Executive of WA SEA.

Both companies are supporting developments in the Western Australian market, and both will clearly be important players as Western Australia ramps up use of our massive renewable energy resources.

And both Synergy and Carnegie Corporation are active members of the WA SEA, the only industry body advocating substantive action on sustainable energy in Western Australia.

"These sorts of projects will diversify and grow Western Australia's sources of energy, increase WA's industry base, and create a more robust environment for business and a more sustainable economy for the State," says Dr Wills

This announcement follows news that New World Energy has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Synergy for the supply of electricity based on generation from geothermal energy projects.

"The slowdown in the economy is also an opportunity - an ideal time to chart a new course - one that helps decarbonise the economy and supports nation-building infrastructure projects in the sustainable energy sector to create employment in new, sustainable projects across Australia. Removing barriers to market entry, providing incentives for private sector for innovative investment in Western Australia's energy network is the key to security of WA energy supplies," says Dr Wills.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
