Renewable Power Systems
MPower has delivered a variety of renewable energy projects across Australia and the Pacific Region including EPC design and construction, technology integration, grid connection and synchronization, hybrid power plants and mini-grid systems. Project stakeholders look to MPower as a proven installation performer, particularly where new technology is being deployed, knowing they can rely on project cost estimates, delivery times and technical outcomes.

Construction of renewable energy plants will continue at a fast pace throughout the Pacific region.
The Australia Government target for large-scale generation of renewable energy of 33,000 GWh by 2020 will double current capacity and mean that about 23.5 per cent of Australia’s electricity generation in 2020 will be from renewable sources.
Pacific Island nations aim to move to almost total reliance on renewables by 2020.
This push for clean energy requires innovative technical solutions to address the intermittent nature of renewable energy. The tasks of energy management and delivery of secure power become more complex.
The increased renewables capacity will be deployed in smaller, distributed, hybrid power plants replacing the centralized, large fossil fuel plants of today. Integration of these new technologies and how they are controlled and supported will be key. New technologies will increase energy efficiency and plant yields.
Utility grid connection specifications will need to keep pace with advances in technologies to ensure new plants can be brought on line without impacting the quality and reliability of the existing power supply.
Construction time and costs to design and build renewable energy plants will continue to decline as manufacturers and installers become more efficient and larger economies of scale apply. New technologies and applications will expand the number of commercially viable power plant sites.
