Planet Ark Power and EnergyAustralia announced in December 2022 that they would partner to provide safe, reliable, and affordable smart energy charging solutions for the Australian transport industry.
The electrification projects that EnergyAustralia undertakes with Planet Ark Power, will have on-site solar, a battery and EV charging, enabled by Planet Ark Power’s eleXsys energy management platform. This platform will help reduce grid connection costs and maximise the value of the solar, battery and charging energy. By working jointly together, we can support the transport industry’s electrification by reducing grid connection complexities, lowering demand charges and achieving faster charging.
“EnergyAustralia is committed to becoming the partner of choice for companies looking to transition to zero emissions fleets. Our partnership with Planet Ark Power helps us provide our customers with safe, reliable, and affordable smart energy charging solutions. It enables us to maximise our customers’ benefits from their EV charging infrastructure investments,” said, Jack Kotlyar, Head of NextGen, EnergyAustralia
Distributed energy can be one of the most efficient forms of energy generation and storage. Our eleXsys platform not only assists with voltage regulation but is built to enable microgrids so that other people can share in that renewable energy. This enables EnergyAustralia to convert each of these depots into microgrids maximising the use of renewable energy generated and stored.
“We are excited to be part of this journey with EnergyAustralia, as it accelerates the clean energy transformation in transport,” said Peter Newland, CEO, Planet Ark Power.
Andrew Theodore, Chief Customer Officer said: “Since the announcement, we have already started working on several opportunities where our customers want to achieve rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and meet their climate goals.
This partnership will help support the transport sector that will increasingly rely on the grid as they transition to zero-emission vehicles. eleXsys, makes it easier for EnergyAustralia to close the loop without expensive network infrastructure upgrades.”
Invented in Australia, eleXsys is an internationally award-winning, proprietary solution to the challenge of voltage volatility created by increasing distributed energy connected to distribution grids. The ever-increasing popularity of solar PV, wind and other clean energy distributed resources will continue to create challenges for network operators around the world to provide ongoing safe and stable energy to consumers. Planet Ark Power’s eleXsys technology platform represents an important contribution to the stability solutions sought by network operators and their consumers, without the need for expensive network infrastructure upgrades. Applied across commercial and industrial environments, eleXsys enables building owners to maximise their returns on investment from battery storage and solar installations.
