Providing hands-on learning opportunities for students
The Hills Educational Foundation, which manages the primary and secondary schools, as well as the golf academy, will use the hydrogen facility to provide theoretical and practical hands-on learning opportunities for students interested in renewable energy and hydrogen production.
The expanded facility is funded by Elecseed, an international renewable energy developer. As part of the development of the renewable energy park, we are collaborating with Queensland University of Technology on research and development.
Reducing annual power costs
The initial solar farm, which was commissioned in 2017, had already decreased the school’s dependency on the state grid, thereby also reducing annual power costs. The school was also one of the first in Australia to power its school bus fleet using hydrogen energy.
