AEP International

AEP Renewables a division of Australian Enviro Projects Pty Ltd is a project management company with offices in Australia and Indonesia focusing in all facets of renewables.

We offer a full range of services specializing in Solar Power, Battery Storage, Power management and automation and water treatment plants.

We have partnered with a broad field of experienced international suppliers, combining years of experience throughout Asia, enabling us to be adaptable within the ever-changing development industry.

Our target markets are remote developing areas where power and water are often hard to come by, and we offer a turnkey solution for current and future developments.


AEP design remote area, stand alone or autonomous power systems to provide the power needs for businesses in regions where connection to the electricity grid may be cost prohibitive.

With a power system from AEP you can be sure you have the highest quality components offering the best performance and life for your investment.

Developers in remote areas are finding it more and more necessary to look for alternative sources of power, rather than the commonly used diesel generation, which is expensive, polluting and requires a high level of on-going servicing.

Successful developers are taking advantage of the option to capture energy from the Sun, a source of power that is free, available every day and provides environmental benefits.


A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is an electricity supply agreement between AEP, its partner companies and a client to purchase power at an agreed rate, either with an upfront amount or at no cost.

AEP will arrange to provide low cost power at a fixed rate for an extended period of up to 15 years, we will agree to secure the cost of your energy for this period in return for the service agreement.

We will take care of the energy system over the period of the agreement at no cost to you, simply put we will install a system that will provide power to your facility at a fixed cost substantially less than you currently pay.


A PPA is a simple process, we produce the power and you buy from us at a reduced rate.


  • AEP will work with its partners and install the power generation unit (Solar power) to your existing facility up to any size (above 50Kw)
  • We will use quality products that produce good clean energy to maximize the investment.
  • We will agree to provide this power at a capped rate for the period of the agreement, generally 15 years, generally as much as 50% less than current rates (subject to your area)
  • The system is owned by the customer outright after the agreed period or can be purchased at a reduced rate at anytime.


AEP assists customers with solving the most challenging water supply and quality issues by providing water treatment solutions that primarily utilize membrane filtration technology.

Our vast partnership with water treatment suppliers of various technologies strives to help our customers reduce costs, increase operational efficiencies, meet environmental regulations and prepare for the complete water quality demands that our customers require.

Commercial Options

AEP provides unique commercial flexibility through a range of financial and service level options to ensure clients receive outcomes that suit their particular circumstances.

These include:


  •         capital purchase
  •         build Own Operate (Transfer) for long term agreements
  •         flexible operation and maintenance agreements


Capital Purchase

This is a standard procurement option where you, the client purchase the plant outright. AEP and our partners provide operations and maintenance support at a level to suit your risk appetite and circumstances.

Build Own Operate

Build Own Operate contracts provide financing and transfer the system operation and maintenance risk away from your organisation. AEP and our partners  take full responsibility for water delivery to contract specifications with guaranteed performance. Your water charge is directly linked to usage. This allows for the cost of water production to become a monthly operating expense rather than a capital cost.


1     Overview

An 80kw solar system with energy monitoring was installed in March 2015 at Cathodic Anodes Australia in April 2014 with the following aims:

a) Draw energy consumption from a renewable source

b) Minimize as much as possible grid consumption

c) Keep the company in tariff and not demand charges

The following report represents data for the month of July starting on the 1st up until the 5th of November 2014.

Data Capture when the induction furnace is operating

During days where the furnaces are operating the Solar system is working at its full 80kW load, and providing 370-­‐420kWh worth of free renewable energy.

The load is huge during these days, of which the Solar is providing approx. 25%.


Data Capture when furnaces are not operating


The Solar system is only working at a very small % of its potential during days where there are no induction furnaces operating, but still covering more than 50% of your daily load.

I notice there is something operating at about 6-­‐8kW per phase but on only 2 phases from 6am on these days, which may be evenly split on each phase and turned on closer to 9am when the solar is running at its peak.

Data Capture when electric resistance furnace is operating


CONT….. During days where the electric existencfurnace is operating the Solar system is working at its full 80kW load for periods of a time during the day, and providing 200-­‐220kWh worth of free renewable energy.

Most of the base load is covered now that the phases have been balanced.

1     Overview

An 80kW Solar system with Energy monitoring has been installed at AIB Insurance with the following aims:


a) Draw energy consumption from a renewable source

b) Minimize as much as possible grid consumption

c) Pin point any non-­‐essential loads.


The following report represents data for the month of June starting on the 17th up until the end of August 2014.



2     Energy Bills 2013 Vs 2014 and Savings



3     Points of interest

We can see a sharp increase in Solar Output each month, caused by the following decisions


a) June the system was only operating for 13 days

b)July we fixed the uneven loads to bring them closer together

c) August the system was running as it should

d) Without any other weather improvements we are on track to save AIB no less than $14,112 per annum.


The system has also been sized for summer when the air conditioning will be running at full. Currently the zero export is controlling the Solar system at around 35%, so as your load grows moving into summer so will your over all savings.


The 80kW Solar system will also cover a large portion of the daytime load should anyone move into the offices that are currently vacant.

An 30kW Micro Inverter Solar system with Energy monitoring has been installed at St Benedict’s Catholic School with the following aims:


a) Draw energy consumption from a renewable source

b) Minimize as much as possible grid consumption

c) Bring the customer below the large consumer threshold and stop any threat to being placed on demand charges










Matt Harold managed the installation of a Solar system on Gympie Tafe. The system was installed quickly,professionally and on budget. We have been closely monitoring the output and our power bills and to date we have experienced a greater return than expected.

Wide Bay Tafe - Brad Faint General Manager

Australian Enviro Projects provided a 100kW complete off grid system for my large family home. We spoke to a number of companies and carefully chose Glen and his team to complete the job due to their professionalism and ability to deliver quality products within my budget. The system has not faulted and my generator has only been used as scheduled each month.

“We considered getting a Solar System largely due to our ever rising cost of electricity and appointed Australian Enviro Projects to develop a strategy. They clearly pointed out the benefits, exactly what was involved and what sort of financial returns we would gain. Our 81kW system was delivered on time and to budget which will save us considerable money each month, enhance the value of our building and help reduce our annual carbon emissions.” Vicki Warne Managing Director AIB Insurance.

Harnessing The Sun To Make Anodes

Cathodic Anodes Australasia is proud to announce the commissioning of their new Solar Power System at their Anode Manufacturing Plant at Kunda Park in Queensland.
CAA General Manager Ross Gorfine comments, “this is great news for us, we have been working towards this for the last few years. Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, reducing our carbon footprint and decreasing our overall impact on the environment were key factors in our decision to go solar. In terms of cost, we did the maths and the economic benefits quickly became evident.”
“Some people say it is a progressive move, we saw it as an opportunity to do the right thing and it also makes good economic sense.”
“As far as we know, we are the only Anode Manufacturing foundry in the southern hemisphere utilising clean solar energy. It is good to know that a large proportion of our anodes will be manufactured using the power of the sun.”
“In terms of monitoring, the technology is quite amazing, it links straight into our online energy efficiency monitoring system, so we can review our energy inputs and outputs in real time. We would really like to thank Enviro Projects, who designed, supplied and installed the system. They did a great job.”
“Energy consumption


has been a major hurdle for us, we have spent a lot of time and money improving the efficiency of our key equipment. To have a state-of-the-art solar system as well is going to be an enormous benefit.”
