Title: A solar future for Alice Springs


1
A solar future for Alice Springs
2
Solar Cities
  • Australian Government Solar Cities program -
    DEWHA
  • Adelaide, Townsville, Blacktown, Alice Springs,
    Central Victoria
  • 6 year program
  • trialling options to inform future policy
  • Smart Metering and pricing
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Solar Power

3
Climate Change Alice Springs
  • Is happening, rapid change
  • future climate uncertain
  • Magnified effect for our region hotter, drier
  • Increasing consumer awareness
  • Impact of Carbon trading
  • Power station has low per-unit emissions
  • High per-person energy consumption
  • Water use is energy intensive

4
Alice Solar City in action
  • A consortium ASTC lead proponent
  • Co-operation between all levels of government and
    private sector
  • Launched March 2008, funded to 2013
  • Project Value 40 million

5
Focus of Alice Solar City
  • Improving energy efficiency
  • Action now existing buildings
  • solar power
  • peak loads infrastructure costs
  • Promote awareness of energy Energy Champions
  • Reporting and Monitoring

6
Targets
7
One segment of Sustainability
  • Alice Solar City
  • - energy efficiency, solar power
  • Other Sustainability Initiatives
  • Working with COOLmob
  • - residential Water (with NRETA), Transport,
    Waste

What does Alice Solar City offer?
  • Residential and Commercial Programs
  • Advice and information at SLC
  • Free Energy Surveys
  • Energy Efficiency Incentives (e.g. insulation,
    lighting)
  • Solar Hot Water and PV Incentives
  • Smart Metering and CRTs
  • Proposed Large scale Iconic Installations
    Airport, Ilparpa

9
Residential Program
  • Close to 3 months since launch
  • 200 registered customers
  • 130 home energy surveys
  • 380 vouchers
  • Strong interest in Photo-voltaics and SHW
  • Energy efficiency program popular

10
Residential Program (cont.)
  • Willingness to make changes
  • Lack of suitable roof space
  • Large range of consumption levels
  • Average household is 8,400 kWh pa
  • Range from 2,000 to 22,000 kWh pa (both for 2
    person households)
  • Behaviours are key same house, different
    consumption

11
Planning and Design for Energy Efficiency
  • Can reduce energy needs with intelligent, locally
    appropriate design
  • Often at minimal extra cost
  • Passive solar design
  • Insulation and glazing
  • Building Code
  • Energy Star Rating

12
Planning for Rooftop Solar Power
  • Water heating, PV
  • North facing roof space
  • 22 to 25 degree slope
  • Minimise Shading on Northern roof
  • Maintenance access
  • Urban planning orientation of land parcels

13
Conclusion Alice Solar City
  • Clean, efficient, intelligent energy use
  • We aim to be a model for the rest of Australia
    and the world to follow
