Distributed energy resourcesProject Indra Monash Smart City
In partnership with global tech company Indra, Monash is developing a precinct scale microgrid platform as part of the ARENA funded Smart Energy City project.
n 2015, countries around the world, including Australia, agreed to limit global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, and to pursue efforts to further limit this to 1.5 degrees. For developed countries like Australia, limiting temperature rise to less than 2 degrees is commonly accepted as requiring net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Monash is Australia’s largest university with more than 70,000 student enrolments and over 150 buildings spread across four domestic campuses. By committing to a net zero target well before 2050, Monash University is leading the way in Australia’s transition to net zero emissions.
