Nearly 100 years ago Hydro Tasmania embarked on a clean energy journey, becoming one of Australia’s leaders in renewable energy development.
Today, we continue our proud history of clean energy with the King Island Renewable Energy Integration Project (KIREIP).
Recently completed , KIREIP, has one main goal – increase renewable energy generation and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Ideally, renewables will provide over 65% of the annual energy demand and when conditions allow 100% renewable energy use.
To achieve this, the project brought together a portfolio of new and existing technologies. KIREIP will also reduce emissions and ensure the quality and reliability of power supply on the island. See the details of the project >
KIREIP gives a glimpse of the possible future of renewable energy – a way renewable energy can work with enabling and storage technologies in a hybrid off-grid power system. The project will also contribute to the development of renewable energy for the wider Australian National Electricity Market.
KIREIP is an initiative of Hydro Tasmania and has been developed with the assistance of the Australian Government’s Australian Renewable Energy Agency and the Tasmanian Government.
