Green transformers for the city?

Sunday, May 11, 2008

Meg met Bruce Taper and Nick Rowley, the directors of Kinesis pty Ltd, to discuss economic, social and environmental issues tied up with climate change, specifically their ideas for coal-free power for Sydney. They have been involved in drawing a project to provide electricity to power, heat and cool homes across the city.

 

Under the plan they have proposed a system of integrated Green Transformers to provide low-carbon energy. Instead of burning coal in massive power plants and then distributing that electricity across the state, this plan proposes locating a number of Green Transformers around the City’s Centre and its villages. Instead of burning coal, the Green Transformers would initially be fuelled by natural gas to generate electricity. The heat and water from the generation process is then captured, providing free hot water, heating and cooling. Converting from coal to natural gas would instantly drop CO2 emissions by more than half. In the long-term instead of burning natural gas, the Green Transformers could burn methane gas harvested from household waste.

 

The benefits are obvious and include reduced air pollution from coal-burning, lower greenhouse emissions, free hot water, free heating, free cooling, less mains water consumption, less landfill and many more. Their modelling has been applied on the largest scale ever seen for a city.
