ARENA joined Parliamentary Secretary for Industry the Hon Bob Baldwin MP at the official opening of a solar thermal demonstration plant at the Wallsend Pool in Newcastle today.
The Granite Power and the University of Newcastle’s project aims to increase the efficiency of solar thermal generation by using GRANEX heat engine technology.
It will generate 30 kilowatts of electrical output and supply 150 kilowatts to heat the swimming pool, which is adjacent to the solar thermal field.
