Green Energy

The New Zealand electricity industry is rapidly adapting itself to a more environmentally-friendly model.  The move toward this Green Energy focus involves a step change for all aspects of our Nation. 

Tesla specialist engineers have robust experience in many of aspects that are changing through this Green direction.  These include: 
  • Complex control and protection requirements for Network-connected Battery installations,
  • Concept and review of generation from network-sized Solar, Farm generation sites
  • Concept and review of generation from network-sized Wind Farm generation sites,
  • Detailed understanding of complex Grid and Sub-Transmission modelling required for Wind / Solar / Battery inputs,
  • Extensive experience with all aspects of Geothermal generation sites, small and large,
  • Extensive experience with all aspects of Hydro Generation sites,
  • Scoping and design of complex anti-islanding schemes,
  • Sub-transmission network modelling to support large vehicle charging facilities (often associated with public transport),
  • Transmission network modelling associated with significant shifts of generation and load centres,
  • Wide-area earthing tests and studies required for large Solar and Wind sites.

Tesla’s Green Energy experience spreads across our Protection, Control, Civil &
Structural and Comms teams.
