Embedded Electricity Generation: Top 3 Benefits for Australia

on Wednesday, 10 April 2013. Posted in news

Embedded electricity generation is becoming more and more attractive as the disparity between base consumption and peak demand grows.  Discover the top 3 benefits of embedded generation and how it can help Australia meet its peak demand challenges.

Embedded electricity generation, also referred to as on-site generation, distributed generation, decentralised generation, dispersed generation and distributed energy, is the production of electricity at point of use. It often denotes the collection of many small sources of energy in contrast to traditional grid-supplied electricity which is sourced from one centralised point, generally a very large coal-fired power station. Distributed generation is becoming more and more attractive as a solution to Australia’s challenging peak demand management issue because of the growing disparity between base consumption and peak demand.

Why is embedded generation good for Australia?

A recent RPS report, commissioned by Velocity Energy, shows that Australia’s proposed carbon tax will not have a material effect on the net price of electricity production from diesel embedded standby generators.

The comparison was based on the emissions of a 1MW generator for run times of between 25 – 150 hours per year (reflecting production of 25 – 150MWh per year) and the energy from the grid required to produce the equivalent energy output. Key findings include:

1 - Diesel embedded standby generators will be exempt from the carbon pricing regime as they produce less than the 25kt CO2-e threshold.

Liquid fuel produced electricity is covered by the Government’s proposed carbon pricing; however, the pricing only applies to facilities producing more than 25kt CO2-e of greenhouse gas emissions. Even at the highest operational usage time modeled in the study (150 hours / year), and using any type of fuel combination, diesel embedded standby generators did not produce more than 109 tonnes CO2-e.
