Autonomous Energy 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, and smashed the world record for solar cell efficiency. The solar cell technology used in this project (PERC) is a UNSW invention. With over 25 of Autonomous Energy’s current professional team being UNSW Alumni this project is of particular significance and meaning for us.

Autonomous Energy solution

  • Innovative safety measures were implemented to ensure all UNSW staff, students, community members and AE staff were completely safe during construction at this busy campus.
  • Safely uninstalled old system that was being replaced, lowered all equipment to the ground and organised recycling of old components
  • All installation work and connections were carried out with no disruption to the universities normal operations
  • Thoughtful design to minimise shading losses and accommodate for curved roof.

What UNSW says

UNSW engaged Autonomous Energy to install a 100kW solar system on one of our most complex roofs from an access perspective at our Kensington Campus in Sydney. UNSW has been extremely satisfied with the work Autonomous Energy has carried out and have maintained a good relationship since the completion of this project.
 
UNSW has meticulous design and quality requirements and during my career as a project manager employed at UNSW, I have managed countless projects across a range of services. Given these strict requirements and my experience, I have been impressed at the quality and attention to detail by Autonomous Energy and their services from tendering, engineering, design and installation have been excellent.
 
Autonomous’ work has been of the utmost quality, which has made managing their projects less time intensive and hassle-free. This quality has further been evident in the ongoing performance of the system, which has performed as forecast ensuring that the ROI was achieved which we are extremely pleased with.
 
Overall our experience with Autonomous Energy has been fantastic and we would highly recommend them to other organisations, no matter the complexity of the installation.
