The Sir Samuel Griffith Building is the first of its kind in Australia to be powered by PV-Fuel Cell Energy System with integrated Hydrogen Storage. Grid connected power will only be used as standby. The building will generate power from Photovoltaic Panels which will power the building with surplus energy directed to an Electrolyser to produce Hydrogen which can later be converted in a fuel cell to electric power. MDA Consulting Engineers have a critical role in this process in determining the Green Star objectives and ESD principles to drive the sustainable initiatives for the project and ensure the lowest carbon footprint possible.
