The project supplies power to the abattoir at peak times of the daily billing cycle to reduce the operation’s overall power bill. To meet the peak demand periods, the engines are operated on dual fuel, blending biogas with natural gas. Dual fuel blending is an innovative application in the field of bioenergy. It enables projects to better meet the demand cycles of customers and enhances project viability through the addition of natural gas.
Funding: $2.1 million Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) grant. ARENA plays a critical role in assisting technologies and businesses to successfully demonstrate and commercialise emerging renewable energy technologies. We wish to acknowledge the support and collaboration we have received from ARENA.
