Joule Logic installed an Enercon E-30 300 kW wind turbine on Flinders Island in late 2012 to offset diesel generation at the local diesel power station. This turbine was originally purchased by the Australian Antarctic Division for use at its Mawson base, but was not installed. The turbine produces about 25% of Flinders Island’s electricity […]
Joule Logic provided engineering, environmental and planning services to facilitate the installation and operation of a Vestas V-27 wind turbine at Blokker Freesia in Wesley Vale, Tasmania. Blokker Freesia produces cut flowers primarily for the Australian market and has state-of-the-art climate controlled greenhouses which allow the flowers to be grown year round. The site has an […]
One of Joule Logic’s business entities purchased the iconic wind turbine owned by Ausgrid on Kooragang Island, north of Newcastle NSW. The turbine was installed in late 1997 by Ausgrid’s predecessor EnergyAustralia to promote the emerging green energy market. The turbine is in excellent condition and is currently in storage as we pursue several options […]
Joule Logic has been working with the Tasmanian Climate Change Office (TCCO) to increase the deployment of electric vehicles in Tasmania. Joule Logic is currently working with twelve fleet managers and other stakeholders to introduce plug-in vehicles such as the Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid and the Nissan Leaf into their fleets.
Joule Logic worked with the Clean Energy Council to develop a certification scheme for small wind turbines in Australia. This involved a review of international small wind turbine product certification schemes, an overview of the proposed Australian product certification scheme methodology and drafting of the Australian product certification scheme methodology and stakeholder feedback.
Joule Logic has worked for the World Bank since 2011 on renewable projects in Tonga, Tuvalu and the Dominican Republic. These projects include wind energy projects, solar projects, biomass, network optimisation, energy efficiency and management of the requirements of multiple donor organisations.
Joule Logic negotiated the EPC contract and performed the Superintendent role for this project. The project is a 100kW solar array, producing 130 MWh per year, enabling a substantial increase to the buildings NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System) rating.
Joule Logic produced the report: Pathways towards a wind technology embedded generation industry in Tasmania. This work was completed on behalf of the Tasmanian Renewable Energy Industry Development Board.
The V47 turbines at Hampton underwent a maintenance inspection and reporting campaign to optimise future management of the site and to re-assess the expected economic operational life of the turbines.
Joule Logic prepared a research paper on the global and Australian hydro power industry, covering both the current status and future prospects for the industry.
Joule Logic partnered with Azure International (Beijing) to develop a detailed 5-year forecast of Australian wind turbine generator (WTG) pricing. The project compared WTG pricing in the US, China and Australia between 2006 and 2012 and examined the key drivers of pricing in each market.
Members of the Joule Logic team conducted an end of warranty audit on the Vestas V80 turbines at White Hill Wind Farm on the South Island, New Zealand.
