Epic Energy has selected Habitat Energy to optimise its 39MWp Stage 2 Mannum Solar Farm in the Riverland region of South Australia, which is due to go live in late 2023. The project will help to meet growing demand for renewable generation and save an estimated 26,250 tonnes of CO2 every year, the equivalent of taking 8,750 cars off the road.

The project will add a semi-scheduled generation asset to Epic Energy’s portfolio, requiring proactive dispatch management and oversight in line with the National Electricity Rules and accurate power forecasting to minimise Frequency Control Ancillary Services (FCAS) requirements within the National Electricity Market (NEM). 

Our AI-powered optimisation software and expert power trading team will monitor and optimise the solar farm’s market participation, maximising performance through a collaborative trading strategy and by reducing the asset’s exposure to negative prices and FCAS Causer Pays costs while providing 24/7 monitoring, trading, and dispatch.
