A combination of microgrid, solar, wind, battery, hydrogen technologies were considered in a new model. This resulted in an analysis of an Australia wide hydrogen station network and practical implementation of solar / battery projects. It also led ultimately to the creation of a new related entity for green hydrogen which has secured a multibillion dollar green hydrogen supply to replace heritage fossil fuels for a network of roadhouses.
In 2020, Integrated Energy was engaged by the WA Department of Health to develop and share COVID modelling which informed WA Health Department responses and were also shared in briefings to the Chief Scientist WA. Models were created which could show on a town-by-town basis the potential propagation of COVID across WA by integrating spatial, demographic, and epidemiological data, with a special focus on remote indigenous communities and other areas of high risk. A new model to enhance community resilience was created. These results were subsequently used by the Health Department to brief the Department of the Premier and Cabinet on key COVID response actions. This ground breaking work resulted in several papers, multiple presentations, and front page coverage on the Wall Street Journal.
