Autonomous Energy has completed the design and construction of the largest solar car park in Australia - phase three of Sydney Market’s solar carpark shading roll out, which brings the total solar carpark shading capacity at the markets to 911kW, by far the largest purpose-built solar carpark shading system in Australia. This ground breaking industrial scale solar power system has been built on the top floor of a new multistorey carpark at the famous Sydney Markets at Flemington. Autonomous Energy’s solar engineering team carefully designed and specified this customised solar carpark shading system for maximum solar generation performance, carpark amenity and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Autonomous Energy was appointed by Toyota Motor Corporation Australian to design, supply, install, commission and maintain a 500kW industrial scale Solar PV system, covering the roof of the 'Powertrain Factory' at Toyota's Altona North manufacturing plant in Melbourne.
Autonomous Energy has delivered a large commercial scale solar PV system for the University of New South Wales (UNSW), right in the heart of UNSW’s Sydney Campus above the University’s Quadrangle Lawn.
In March 2015 Autonomous Energy completed installation of a 100kW solar PV system at the Col Crawford BMW dealership building in Brookvale. This system was designed, supplied and installed by Autonomous Energy and is phase 1 of a larger 260kW solar power project (1000 solar panels) over the Col Crawford group of car dealerships and service centres. Concurrently Autonomous Energy has implemented a large energy efficiency upgrade throughout the Col Crawford facilities. The project is genuinely ground-breaking because approximately half of all the solar panels are integrated into a custom designed solar carpark shading structure that generates pollution-free solar electricity at the same time as providing shade and cover from rain for parking and customers using the rooftop car park area. Autonomous Energy worked closely with the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to structure an innovative finance arrangement for this project that enabled the client to save money from day one, at no upfront capital cost.
Autonomous Energy was engaged by Sydney Markets Limited to design, supply, install and commission an innovative Solar Car Park Shading system at the famous Sydney Markets in Flemington. After examining the ability of several companies to deliver the project Sydney Markets chose Autonomous Energy to deliver the project due to our expertise in Solar engineering and design as well as our unparalleled track record in successfully completing challenging Industrial Solar projects. Combined with Phase 2 (completed) and Phase 3 (completed 2016) this is the largest Solar Car Park Shading system installed in Australia. Sydney Markets continues to work closely with Autonomous Energy to fulfil its sustainability goals.
Autonomous Energy has implemented a turnkey 225kW Industrial Solar Power system for Sydney based manufacturer Ace Gutters, will all work being completed by our in-house Solar Engineering and Solar Installation Teams.
In late 2015 Autonomous Energy designed and installed phase two of the solar carpark shading roll out at Sydney Markets. The 100kW solar car port style solar array features prominently at the entrance to ‘Building D’ which houses Sydney’s famous Paddy’s Markets at Flemington. All engineering, project management and installation team personnel were from Autonomous Energy’s experienced in-house teams, making this a true turnkey project with the highest levels of integrity in terms of quality, safety and ongoing system performance.
Autonomous Energy was appointed by Lend Lease as the solar Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor to deliver the 200kW grid connected solar PV system for the new Bendigo Hospital in Victoria.
This is one of several large commercial solar projects recently delivered by Autonomous Energy for new developments built by Lend Lease. A detailed case study of this project is featured in Ecogeneration Magazine and can be viewed here.
In October 2012 Autonomous Energy designed, supplied and installed a 150kW turnkey commercial Solar Power system for Southern Cross Care in Broken Hill, NSW. This system is currently the largest roof integrated Solar Power system in Broken Hill.
In August of 2014 Autonomous Energy was engaged by German Solar Mounting equipment manufacturer Schletter to design and construct a 45kWp Solar Car Park Shading system at Transgrid’s Sydney West Substation in Eastern Creek. Schletter chose to partner with Autonomous Energy for the engineering and construction of this solar power system after Autonomous Energy’s successful installation of Australia’s largest Solar Car Park Shading System (170kW) at Sydney Markets earlier in the year. Schletter's Park@Sol Solar Car Park Shading System was used for this project.
