In June 2020, the Federal Government announced the successful recipients of Round 1 funding from the Regional and Remote Communities Reliability Fund (RRCRF), which was established to provide funding for feasibility studies for microgrids in regional and remote Australian communities. The Yarrabah Microgrid Feasibility Study which seeks to showcase the potential for Yarrabah, a coastal Indigenous Australian community located south-west of Cairns in Queensland, to be a self-reliant, sustainable microgrid that can be rolled out to other communities was awarded $1.9 million from the RRCRF. The study is due to be complete in early 2022.

ITP is pleased to be a partner in the Yarrabah Microgrid Feasibility study being undertaken by a group led by Queensland-based Ener-G Management Group, in conjunction with Planz Town Planning, The Missing Link Resource Coordinators, and ITP Renewables.
