Curtin University “Alternative Energy Study”
Project Manager and Business Case Manager
The Study Curtin University’s existing Campus has a growing electrical and mechanical energy demand which is unabating. The University reviewed its options for addressing the growing chilled water demand of the campus and out of that work chose to explore the available options for using renewable energy technologies to reduce their cost of energy, carbon footprint and potentially leverage off the project for research and teaching opportunities throughout all phases of the project.
IPS were successful in being appointed as Project Manager and Business Case Manager for the project in late December 2012 and immediately commenced stakeholder engagement, strategic briefing with the client, options analysis and procuring a consultant team.
Ultimately IPS delivered a detailed Business Case to the Client that demonstrated the various suitable forms of alternative energy generation for the site where not viable at that point in time based on the maturity of the technology in the market or the economic conditions of the time.
