This ground breaking industrial scale solar power system has been built on the top floor of a new multi-storey car park at the famous Sydney Markets at Flemington. Autonomous Energy’s solar engineering team carefully designed and specified this customised solar car park shading system for maximum solar generation performance, car park amenity and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Autonomous Energy solution

  • The project was designed and managed by Autonomous Energy’s experienced in-house solar engineering team, and 100% of the construction work was undertaken by our in-house solar installation team.
  • Structural components manufactured in Germany to our specifications by Schletter.
  • The solar car park structure features weather-proof soffit sheeting under the solar panels and a complete guttering and drainage system.
  • Rainwater run-off from the system is collected, stored and used by Sydney Markets.
  • The system features over 2,000 LG NeON 2 Solar panels.  This panel is ideal for projects requiring a visually pleasing solar panel and for roofs where space is tight or where future system expansions are under consideration (such as incorporating battery storage). 
  • LG NeON 2 modules - with their double-sided cells and CELLO technology - absorb light from the front and the back of the cell.
  • These high quality, high efficiency panels have excellent salt mist corrosion and wind load properties, and come with a 25 year product warranty. 
  • This solar technology sets a new standard for innovation and was recognised with the 2015 Photovoltaic Innovation Award at the Intersolar Industry Event in Germany.

What Sydney Markets say

Autonomous Energy worked with technical staff and senior management at Sydney Markets Limited to successfully deliver a 911kW solar car park shading system across three project phases. Safety is a key priority at our site and Autonomous Energy’s safety management was best practice. It was a pleasure dealing with all Autonomous Energy staff; they are highly qualified professionals - polite, experienced and accommodating. I can only speak highly of Autonomous Energy. They have done an excellent job from start to finish with no hidden costs.
