Flexible electricity generation with heating and cooling, using innovative, carbon–neutral fuels.
How this will impact Adelaide's carbon emissions
Trigeneration involves the co-production of electricity with heating and cooling. We aim to implement large-scale trigeneration for the University of Adelaide’s North Terrace campus, using an innovative, carbon-neutral fuel called pyrolysis oil. The project could reduce Adelaide’s CO2 emissions by as much as 50,000 tonnes per year. It will also facilitate the development of other opportunities for flexible, renewable energy. Subsequent projects at various locations could double or triple the CO2 reductions within Adelaide and extend the use of the technology to other parts of South Australia.
Voting has now closed for the Wildcard prize. Stay tuned to find out which project will be the 11th finalist.
