The monthly Fremantle Network events are always interesting, and for those inclined so, they are also good opportunities to meet new people and network.

This evening Monday July 24 at 6 pm, upstairs at the National Hotel will have two speakers.

FUTURE ENERGY NETWORKS
James Eggleston is undertaking groundbreaking research in the renewable energy sector, working on a pilot project at the WGV development that seeks to enable strata developments Australia wide to the benefits of solar PV and battery storage.

James is a PhD Researcher at the Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute on an Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) scholarship.

Game changing transition to a more sustainable energy future is happening right here in Fremantle, come along to find out how.

MATES IN CONSTRUCTION
Godfrey Baronie is a Freo local and the CEO of Mates in Construction, a non profit organization that works to reduce the extremely high rate of suicide among construction workers

Incredibly, 190 Australians working in the construction industry take their own lives every year, this means we lose a construction worker every second day to suicide.

Construction workers are six times more likely to die from suicide than an accident at work. For our young workers, the facts are that they are well over two times more likely to take their own lives than other young Australian men.

Godfrey’s joyful manner and lust for life is a shining light for people experiencing dark times.

Bar and kitchen will be open, so stay on for a bit, have dinner and support the National Hotel!

WP 1

Western Power must have won the Powerball as it is hard to imagine how our financially broke state can afford 41 vehicles attending one job at Hampton Road in Fremantle. I counted them.

CARNEGY WAVE ENERGY GOES SOLAR

Posted in energy, environment, fremantle, solar, sustainability, technology by freoview on October 27, 2016

Fremantle based Carnegy Wave Energy has acquired 100% of the Australian Energy Made Clean solar company, adding 65% of the shares to the 35% they already had.

AEMC are specialists in the design, construction and operation of microgrids and large-scale commercial solar projects and storage systems.

Carnegie managing director Michael Ottaviano said that “The potential for the global microgrid market is estimated at US$40 billion by 2020. This acquisition unlocks Carnegie’s ability to deliver a unique, in-house capability to capitalize on a rapidly growing segment of the renewable energy market globally.

“Microgrids are increasingly a major part of the renewable energy market as they can deliver cost competitive, clean power and energy security.”

FREO WAVE POWER FOR STIRLING NAVAL BASE

Posted in electricity, energy, fremantle by freoview on November 25, 2014

Maybe this is the right time for all those who like to play on the stockmarket to buy shares in Fremantle based company Carnegy Wave Energy, who installed their first underwater electricity-generating buoy in the Indian Ocean near Garden Island off the coast of Fremantle.

Once connected to the grid in a few weeks time the company will supply power to the HMAS Stirling naval base and it will even deliver fresh water through the wave energy technology.

I know experts say the stockmarket is the biggest casino in the world, but I reckon buying Carnegy shares might put you on a winner. Buy CWE shares for Christmas!
