Integrating distributed renewables with hybrid energy storage, Australia
Photo: Australia’s largest behind-the-meter commercial energy storage system cuts energy costs and integrates distributed renewables at the largest university in the country.
A world-first hybrid energy storage system at the heart of Australia’s largest university
redT’s energy storage infrastructure is at the centre of an innovative campus microgrid, dispatching renewable energy across a site which sees 55,000 visitors each day.
redT's energy storage infrastructure is one of the core components of the microgrid being developed as part of our Net Zero Initiative, enabling us to dispatch renewable energy more effectively across the campus and help achieve our goal of net zero emissions by 2030.
Leading the way to a 100% renewable future
Monash University is the largest in Australia and the first to commit to a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2030. redT’s innovative technology sits at the heart of a cutting edge energy system, providing a flexible platform that integrates with more than 1MW of onsite solar generation, state of the art building management systems, electric vehicle charging stations and innovative energy sharing and trading mechanisms.

Australia’s largest BTM energy storage system
redT’s 1MWh vanadium flow / Lithium-ion hybrid energy storage solution is the largest behind-the-meter commercial energy storage system to be installed in Australia to date. Situated on the roof of Monash University’s new Biomedical Learning and Teaching building, the system is able to provide both high-power and high-energy services to the campus 365 days a year.
Energy storage unlocking low cost renewables will bring about a significant reduction in energy costs for Australian businesses. Monash University is leading the market with this pioneering project and we are proud to provide their integrated energy storage solution.
