The Garden Island Microgrid Project is the world’s first wave energy integrated microgrid and produces both power and desalinated water. The Project involves the construction and integration of 2MW of photovoltaic solar capacity, a 2MW/0.5MWh battery storage system and a control system with the option to connect wave energy generation technology. Together this forms a microgrid designed to operate either independently or in conjunction with the Western Australian electricity network, seamlessly switching between the two through a control system.
