As an event, editorial and corporate photographer, it’s always pleasing to be able to photograph projects that align with your personal values and interests, so I jumped at the chance to photograph Australia’s Chief Scientist, Alan Finkel on a visit to check out a new renewable energy set up at a new public facility in Wantirna.

RedFlow, Clean Energy Council and Seven20 Electrica, along with Alan Finkel, toured the new Knox childcare centre which features leading-edge insulation, power conservation and renewable energy systems that will save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in energy costs.
With the solar array and batteries installed, it’s estimated that $110-120,000 will be saved per year in power costs.
The performance of the integrated solar panel and battery systems in first few months of winter operation have exceeded expectations, generating 75 per cent of the large centre’s power requirements.  And that’s just winter!  It makes my 1.5kw system at home look a little bit puny…
Seeing renewable energy in action on such a scale is really impressive and is something that all new buildings, whether public, private or residential, should apsire to.
If you’re working in the area of renewable energy or sustainability and require photography services, please get in touch to discuss your needs as I’d be delighted to work with you.
