Episode 39: Going off grid

This week we bring you an engineering special as the isolated power systems workshop brought engineering leaders from around the world to Hobart, Tasmania. What are isolated power systems? Essentially, they are any system that supplies electricity to those off the main electricity grid supply. From small scale operations to one or two households to more complex solutions for small to medium size regional communities, our special guest Dr Gwen Holdman Director of the Alaska Center for Energy and Power fills us in on the creativity to develop sustainable power systems.
