Wastewater sampling quickly became a key part of tracking the COVID-19 virus Australia-wide, combining research from the past and new fast-tracked methods to fight the pandemic. Water Research Australia members’ wastewater sampling and surveillance methods have been used to detect COVID-19 in Australia since the pandemic began, through the Collaboration on Sewage Surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 (ColoSSoS) project.
Unaccounted for water has been identified in the Tasmanian Economic Regulator’s State of the Industry Report as an area in need of improvement. In a bid to address water loss in the network, TasWater has implemented active leakage management, featuring technology that listens for leaks that may not be visible to the naked eye.
As the impacts of climate change worsen and put Australia’s energy future under the microscope, renewables are set to play a significant part in the country’s pathway to a low-emissions future. Utility has collated Australia’s most ambitious renewable projects across batteries, bioenergy, solar, wind and hydro, to reveal how the country is making the most of its abundant resources.
GWMWater has enhanced customer experience with the launch of a Customer Portal – empowering customers with more information about their water supply than ever before. Available on multiple devices, the portal allows customers to view recent and historical water use and set up automatic alerts to notify them of high usage or leaks.
The circular economy refers to the transition away from the current linear model of ‘take, make and dispose’ towards one that uses resources efficiently and repurposes what was previously regarded as waste. Here, we explore the role of utilities in moving from business models that prioritise resource drain to ones that value resource gain.
When renewable energy is used to produce hydrogen, it is a clean fuel with no emissions and has the potential to decarbonise many energy and industrial sectors. Because of this it’s tipped to be a game-changer in the rapidly transforming energy industry, and a global effort is underway to develop hydrogen markets and achieve widespread use.
The Gannawarra Energy Storage System is a 25MW/50MWh lithium-ion battery that shares connection infrastructure with the Gannawarra Solar Farm. Edify Energy, with support from EnergyAustralia, recently published a knowledge sharing report covering its first year in operation, and this article delves into some of the learnings from those 12 months.
