ANT Energy Solutions is working collaboratively with Yarra Valley Estate (YVE) to build a dispatchable 24/7 renewable energy system based on hydrogen in the Yarra Valley.
ANT and its partner ElectromotiV will build a refuelling station at YVE’s site to supply electricity for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and the hydrogen for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV).
YVE is a dedicated conference, wedding and function venue located on a 120 acre natural setting in the Yarra Valley. Sustainability – environmental, social and economic – has and will continue to be at the core of YVE’s business with staff and guests encouraged to engage in best sustainability practices.
As part of its sustainability mission YVE is harvesting and storing sufficient rainwater to make it self-sufficient as well as now increasing the capacity for its own food production. YVE encourages guests to be aware of their energy use, be responsible for it and how that use affects the environment. YVE’s next step is to generate enough power from renewable sources to meet its own electricity needs.
The YVE site is an important milestone in creating a living solution to educate and demonstrate the merits of ANT’s technology. Its rollout will form the foundation towards a sustainable and renewable solution for the benefit of future generations.
