Renewable Energy UPS – Major Projects Victoria

Black Stump Technologies developed a complete solution for a large-scale clean energy challenge, associated with using diesel generators on construction sites. As the main provider of power on construction and infrastructure sites, Black Stump works closely with its partners to address carbon emissions and educate staff on the damaging impacts of toxic diesel fumes on the environment and people.

The Black Stump Renewable Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) system addresses climate change as per the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13. By replacing the use of diesel generators in construction sites, it will significantly reduce CO2 emissions through less reliance on fossil fuels, saving 40,000 kg of CO2 compared to diesel.

Black Stump’s technologies include renewable energy and cold-chain solutions, which help to reduce on-site noise and diesel emissions, significantly reducing costs when compared with the “business as usual” diesel.

Since installation, the Black Stump Renewable Energy UPS system has saved over 30,000 litres of diesel fuel burn and will save 80,000 kgs of CO2 emissions annually, raising awareness of clean energy solutions across the construction sector.
