The mix of energy generation is forever changing. Let’s face it, coal fired energy generation is not the future. However, it will take time for Australia to transition away from coal. To do that we will rely on renewables, plus other fossil fuel generation such as gas engines and turbines for cogeneration and trigeneration systems. We will need to build smart generation systems that combine heat, power, cooling and storage for greater energy efficiency, energy management and business performance.

Converting heat waste into energy used for mine cooling

Key outcomes

  • Cost savings of $2.7 million per annum
  • Total project value $5.5 million
  • 18 month payback period
  • Saves 5000 tonnes of CO2 per annum

The ST Barbara mine in Leonora, Western Australia, had multiple gas generators which were producing heat waste. ETS was engaged to design and install an exhaust system which captures that waste heat and turns it into 5.6MW of additional capacity. The mine uses this additional capacity for its underground cooling system which means that traditional and much more expensive methods of expanding the cooling capacity were no longer required.

Collins Square's Trigeneration Energy System by Optimal Group

Key Outcomes

  • 5 star NABERS efficiency rating

  • Best practice commercial green building design

  • $2 billion project, largest of its kind in Australia.

  • Use of Capstone Microturbine technology

When the Walker Corporation started planning the new Collins Square development they decided it should lead the way in best practice commercial building green design and efficiency.
 
The Optimal Group helped them achieve this, along with exceeding the 5 star NABERS rating. The cornerstone of this plan was a modern embedded trigeneration system where each of the 5 towers making up Collins Square could generate part of its own electrical demand using natural gas.
