Many remote towns, communities and work sites are reliant on fossil fuel (diesel, gas ) for power generation, but this study shows that high proportions of renewable energy (RE) are around three quarters of the lifetime costs of fossil-fuelled generation.
The Broome Clean Energy Study builds on the 2018 Kimberley Clean Energy Roadmap which looked at the entire west Kimberley. This study focusses solely on Broome, but with contemporary RE technology cost estimates. Importantly, this study is derived from powerful new modelling software which allows trends in RE costs to be readily calculated.
Dr Rob Phillips will present the report and discuss the wider implications for energy security and resilience in remote areas.
