Autonomous Energy delivers commercial scale solar for the University of New South Wales (UNSW)

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.

For decades UNSW has been the global leader in solar cell research and development, just a few months ago once again smashing the world record for solar cell efficiency. The solar cell technology used in this project (PERC) is a UNSW invention. With over a dozen of Autonomous Energy’s current professional staff being UNSW Alumni this project is of particular significance and meaning for us.

UNSW selected Autonomous Energy as their solar Engineering, Procurement and Contruction (EPC) company for this project due to our proven performance and focus on Saftey, Quality and Performance. Safety was the number one focus and there were some unique challenges installing this system above the Quadrangle Lawn whilst the University was operational. Autonomous Energy implemented a number of innovative safety measures to ensure all UNSW staff, students, community members and AE staff were completely safe during construction at this busy campus.
