Our Approach

Our approach is underpinned by decades of combined experience in project development; from securing sites and grid connections to EPC and operations and maintenance. We work closely with all parties in the development process including investors, landholders, regulators and offtakers to develop excellent projects. We know how to get projects developed on-budget and on-time ensuring all our partners benefit from ACEnergy’s market leading development process.

With a successful track record of more than 20 projects across Australia, we are a proven partner in renewable energy project development.  

How We Deliver

We have extensive experience across the development value chain from securing investment to operations and maintenance.

Danny Wilkinson

Head of Development

“We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and take great pride in engaging with local communities throughout the lifecycle of each of our projects."

Co-locating projects with existing connection infrastructure is the core of our business and we take great pride in our work. We take great care to consider stakeholders agricultural requirements and work with them to ensure the project is utilising their least productive land.

Project planning and environmental impact due diligence are areas we specialise in, and over time, we have learnt to evaluate countless land aspects and adopt our learnings into current and future projects.

With locals in mind, our core Community Engagement objectives are to be honest, innovative, flexible and transparent at each stage of the engagement process. We keep residents informed about project activities and impacts through timely notification and ongoing access to up-to-date information. Ultimately, ensuring the commitments made to the community are monitored, evaluated and kept.

With over 1.1GW of delivered projects to date, and as the first to receive Victorian state government approval for two BESS projects with a combined capacity of 350MW in early 2021, we play an integral part in the federal government's net zero initiatives.  

Joel Prata

Head of Grid

“A vital enabler of the successful deployment of renewable projects is selecting the locations where the operation of generation and storage projects would work in concert with the network.”

At ACEnergy, our approach for selecting locations for renewable projects involves thoroughly analysing the grid's physical characteristics and the load's behaviour, utilising publicly available information and site surveys.  

The process begins by selecting areas with network assets sufficiently rated to support generation and storage of the intended capacity. This also involves assessing historical energy flows and long-term forecasts to estimate growth trends and ensure an accurately sized generation or storage asset will add value to the network with minimum risk of curtailment.  

We have significant experience with grid connection processes and interacting with Network Service Providers (NSP) in Victoria and New South Wales. Our successful track record of connecting solar generation demonstrates our capability to progress through the grid connection process within the minimum time allowed by NSP processes. Our in-house grid integration and design teams reduce reliance on external consultants, helping mitigate resource risk during the connection process.

“We’re not just developers, we’re committed partners in Australia’s journey towards a sustainable energy future.”

At ACEnergy, our deep commitment to Australia’s renewable energy transition is at the heart of everything we do. We understand the critical role of strong, strategic partnerships in driving the sector forward. Our focus is clear, we exclusively develop solar and battery energy storage systems (BESS) throughout the Network Electricity Market.  

We seek to align with investors who share our vision and commitment to the transition. These investors range from local communities and government to large corporations, private equity investors and commercial banks.  

Taking a long-term view of our projects is fundamental to our approach. By retaining equity shares, we ensure long-term success and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to our projects and Australia’s clean energy future.
