Cleantech Industries Sunshine Coast

2030 Sustainable Development Goals Game Event

Cleantech Industries Sunshine Coast, in partnership with Griffith University are excited to announce the ‘2030 SDGs Game‘ facilitated by Delwyn Langdon of Griffith University Eco Centre.

The 2030 SDGs Game is a multiplayer, in-person, card-based game that simulates taking the “real world” into the year 2030.

Designed in Japan in 2016, this experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon, earning extensive media coverage and reaching over 150,000 participants.

2030 SDGs Game events are held in corporate, governmental, educational, and community settings. We now have over 600 certified facilitators in Japan and around 50 globally.

Play time is approximately 1 hour; with the necessary explanation and reflection afterward, it requires a minimum of 2 hours, and generally works best in a 2 ½ hour time frame.

A snapshot of the 2030 SDGs Card Game.

We are currently in the planning stage but expect our 2030 SDGs Event in July 2021.

ONM Energy Helping to Turn Organic Waste into Renewable Energy and Profit

ONM Energy

ONM Energy provides solutions to turn underperforming Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Plants into the profit creating machines (whilst reducing landfill and carbon emissions) that they should be.

From fixing a catastrophic plant failure to optimising processes to increase results or supporting investors, ONM Energy is here to help.

What is anaerobic digestion?

Anaerobic digestion or AD is the process of using bacteria to break down organic waste (in the absence of light and oxygen) to create nutrient rich fertiliser and biogas. This is used as fuel to create renewable energy and heat, plus reduces landfill and carbon emissions.

In one case study; WILLEN BIOGAS facility wasn’t producing the yield or profits they expected. After emptying the digestion tanks, they discovered plastic waste and grit was reducing the capacity of the tanks and so with a complete overhaul of the operating process and retraining of staff, ONM Energy ensured the facility was operating at healthy levels to produce their anticipated yield.

You can read the full case study here.

ONM Energy is excited to bring their 30+ years of AD knowledge and experience to the Sunshine Coast Cleantech Industry.

Learn more about ONM Energy via their Member Page.

Regson Fabrication

regsonfabrications

Established in 1992, Regson Fabrication is a preferred supplier for Sunshine Coast Regional Council, Main Roads (TMR), Spotless Facilities Managers, and McBerns Innovations Solutions.

One of their many success stories includes the upgrade of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital Car Park and artwork installations. They used only locally sourced quality materials, reducing carbon emissions. They used zero energy from the grid to manufacture steel, utilising solar at the Kunda Park Factory. By keeping manufacturing local, they created jobs here.

In an unlikely partnership, Nicky McMillan from Regson Fabrication ran a pop-up fruit stall to educate builders, working on the car park upgrade to eat more fruit for fuel instead of energy drinks and chocolate bars. Within 6 months she had workers showing off their healthy lunch boxes and proved that with the right approach, change can happen.

Regson Fabrication won the Master Builders Sunshine Coast Commercial Trade Contractor of the Year award in 2017. 

By supporting local industry, utilising solar and even educating builders on healthy eating habits, Regson Fabrication is proof sustainable change can happen in any business.

You can find out more details about Regson Fabrication on their CISC member page.

Mooloolaba Roof Goes Cleantech

Cleantech Member Success Story – ARCPANEL

Image sourced: Sunshine Coast Council website

Cleantech Industries Sunshine Coast Member ARCPANEL’s innovative, prefabricated Ecotek Panel roofing system tops off the $18 million redevelopment of the Brisbane Road Car Park in Mooloolaba.

Aurem Pty Ltd have utilised ARCPANEL’S roofing system on the top of the new eight-storey multi-deck car park. An exemplar of the value of sustainable design taking advantage of the structural insulated features, reducing the need for additional steel beams and minimal waste onsite. A fantastic design by @blackburnejackson that takes in local references from the Mooloolaba area.

The new car park will increase public parking in Mooloolaba from 176 spaces to over 700 car parking spaces, with a further 54 motorcycle spaces and 50 bicycle spaces and is due for completion in December 2020.

IKEA Stores Becoming Microgrids

CISC Member Success Story – Planet Ark Power

Architectural simulation of the completed microgrid at IKEA store

Australia’s largest grid-connected commercial microgrid of its kind by Planet Ark Power at IKEA Adelaide. The $6.6m, 1.2MW solar installation connected to an on-site 3MW battery and Planet Ark Power’s eleXsys Energy Management System (eEMS) is set to commence construction. Congratulations to CISC Vice President Will Waters for his work on this ground-breaking project.

Jan Gardberg, CEO and Chief Sustainability Officer for IKEA Australia says “IKEA Australia is working to achieve three goals in our sustainability agenda including:

  • being powered by 100% clean energy,
  • transitioning our delivery fleet to 100% zero-emissions,
  • inspiring our customers in joining a clean energy movement.

We are thrilled that this project will create new opportunities for job creation, innovation, economic growth and reduced energy costs.”

Planet Ark Power’s Jonathon Ruddick says “Three years on from when the SA Government committed to invest $1.9m in the IKEA eleXsys Microgrid, PV panels and battery prices have fallen to such an extent that, along with the avoidance of one-off, start-up R&D and design costs, similar grid-connected microgrids will stand on their own two feet, without the need for ongoing government financial support.”

Off The Grid Eco Tourism

CISC Member Success Story – ENOPTE

Partnering with Aussie Tiny Houses, ENOPTE’s 5 kWh PowerStation battery stores solar power and enables off-the-grid accommodation.

Alex Cooper’s of Ketchup’s Bank Glamping says the glamping style tiny house gives his guests a luxury eco-tourism experience with views of the Scenic Rim and is already in high demand.

Solar panels are installed in the roof and depending on the roof’s shape and design will affect the amount of panels that may be installed. Another option is to have the solar panels mounted on the ground.

The system has an input for generator, or mains, in event of charging the battery due to bad weather conditions, etc.

Allowing environmental and educational insights, guests at this couple’s retreat experience what it’s like to live completely off the grid relying on the sun’s energy to power everything from the lighting to the electrical appliances.

In our first face to face event in a few months due to covid-19 restrictions, CISC members and guests shared their business innovations in a ‘Speed Pitching’ and networking event. We heard from local Sunshine Coast cleantech and sustainable businesses doing great work in the industry.

The ‘Speed Pitching’ was followed by a fun networking session where businesses connected with each other. This is all about connecting and celebrating being face-to-face with people in the industry, and people interested in sustainability and clean technologies and potential clients.

It’s a great time to be in the cleantech industry!

New CISC Committee Celebrates Cleantech

At the AGM and Christmas Drinks, we welcomed the new Management Committee of Cleantech Industries Sunshine Coast. President & Secretary Megyn Carpenter, Vice President Peter Kelly and Treasurer Jackie Capiaghi. New Management Committee members Mark Leckenby of Enopte and Josh Bennett of Q-Image joined Leanne Hellmrich, Darren Walters, Adam Prescott, Will Waters and Glenn Eales. Megyn thanked Jackie for the her work with the financials over the past 3 years.

Megyn acknowledged the tremendous support of the Sunshine Coast Council, in particular Scott Breust and Cr. Steve Robinson, for their commitment to CISC announcing that CISC has been awarded Community Partnerships annual funding of $10,000 over three years to assist with operational expenses.

Megyn said “This funding will give a huge boost to CISC. As a volunteer association, I believe we have come a long way in the past couple of years. We have fantastic support and there are huge opportunities for businesses in the cleantech industry, especially with the national conference being held here in May 2019.”

Encouraging CISC Members to attend the National Clean Technology Conference and Exhibition in May 2019, Megyn said “CISC Members receive a 40% discount to the conference giving savings of up to $500. With CISC annual membership being kept at $99, being a member of Cleantech Industries Sunshine Coast has fantastic benefits.”
