Water Management

Industry Summary

As major cities across the country continue to spread outwards, the urban sprawl is threating to consume more forests and farmland, making a significant impact on the environment and the worlds objectives of reducing its carbon footprint.

Governments are also struggling to support this housing growth by ways of delivering and maintaining infrastructure and essential services such as water management.

An essential service Governments struggle to support (without great expense) is power. Power companies require significant investment to extend power grid connections to houses and the water management infrastructure.

Without access to power, pumping stations that support water supply and sewerage becomes a major challenge to overcome and a major expense to connect power from the grid!

The Opportunity

The Water Industry in Australia is made up of a number of different sectors which include water supply, wastewater (sewerage), and stormwater management.

Each of these sectors faces constant pressure to deliver upon a Customer Charter to meet key objectives Water Industry Regulators such as:

  • Carbon Emission Targets: Meeting state and federal government policies and objectives.
  • Supply Services to Remote Areas: The ‘nobody gets left behind’ approach to servicing regional areas where traditional infrastructure was too costly and hard to maintain.
  • Improve Water Supply Resilience: Insulate the service from natural disasters like fires, storms, and floods.

The Customer Charter for supply is facilitated by the Water Board Innovation Team who are part of the Department of Environment Water Land and Planning (DELP).

Their objectives are to plan, build and test solutions that help to develop sustainable water service infrastructure in line with Water Industry Regulators.

Carbon Neutral Targets and Greenhouse Emmission Reductions_REDEI Renewable Energy

2030 Carbon Neutral Targets

Decision-makers involved in the process of delivering upon these carbon-neutral goals believe that solar farms will have the ability to supply power to water systems.

This assumption is incorrect as solar farms are only one piece of the total solutions that are required.

  • 2030 Carbon Neutral Targets
  • Building Energy Resilience

    Many of the existing renewable energy systems that are in place cater only for one or two sources of energy e.g. solar or wind.  When power consumption increases such as high tourist periods, changes in seasons, shortfalls in energy supply can quickly cause supply consistencies.

    Charter of Supply

    The Customer Charter of supply details a range of key performance indicators around supply mandates, each is enforced. Penalties are applied for system outages or supply loss.

    Supporting Urban Housing Sprawl

    Has city housing spreads outwards, providing water infrastructure can be costly and difficult to support. Having access to grid electricity in these rural or semi-regional areas can often be too costly to implement.

    Using a stand-alone or networked renewable energy solutions from REDEI can solve this issue.

      REDEI Solutions

      Without easy access to power, pumping stations to support water supply and sewerage pumping stations becomes an expensive challenge to overcome.

      With a successful track record in the water industry, REDEI has been providing innovative, turn-key renewable energy solutions that are used to power wastewater pumping stations in regional areas of Victoria.

      REDEI has been providing Melbourne Water with pre-packaged energy solutions made up of two solar panels, batteries, inverter, all within a quality cabinet that can quickly and easily be installed to power the pumps used in smaller sewer pods around suburban areas here in Victoria.

      These remotely managed systems vastly improve the way Melbourne Water manages the load volumes across the sewerage pods within an area.  They can schedule pumping from pods remotely with minimal disruption to main sewer volumes.

      These proven renewable energy systems from REDEI can be deployed quickly and easily at a much lower cost, thus solving the supply, storage, and continuous energy reliability challenge.


      So that REDEI can continue to provide quality renewable energy solutions, our team relies on the continuous improvement program and accreditation provided by our industry regulatory partners.  These accreditation programs ensure that our renewable energy products meet Australian Standards for use in the design and installation of solar and battery renewable power storage systems.
