ANNUAL REPORT

2000




CHAIRMAN’s FOREWORD

Associate Professor Charles Webb, Pro Vice-Chancellor.

(Higher Education and Research)

The year 2000 was provided turbulent times for the NT Centre for Energy Research (NTCER). The Sustainable Energy Industry Association reported that the sustainable energy industry growth rate in Australia was 28%, even surpassing the growth rate of the information technology industry. Much of this is being driven by federal government initiatives such as the “Renewable Energy Commercialisation Program”, the 2% renewable energy retail sales bill that the government has now introduced into Parliament and new initiatives such as the Remote Rural Power Generation Program.

On top of that the Faculty of Technology underwent a review and NTCER’s Director, Dr Dean Patterson, has been granted leave to take up a post in an American university during 2001. This potpourri of growth and pause is leading to change and there will be opportunities during 2001 for NTCER to expand its portfolio of activities to include a range of energy related priorities within the Territory community.

The Desert Rose is the Centre’s flagship. It performed flawlessly once again, establishing a new world speed record, as well as finishing in first position on two days of the Whirlpool Sunrace 2000, and coming second overall.



The topology of the axial flux motor developed for the “Desert Rose” has been or is being extended to a range of useful and commercially prospective applications, including ceiling fans, bicycles, scooters, evaporative air conditioners and electric vehicles.


This progress has seen the first round of the Australian Cooperative Research Centre for renewable Energy (ACRE) projects draw to a successful close. Commercialisation of the product of that work is a priority for 2001, as is establishment of a fresh ACRE/NTCER project portfolio.


The Centre, and indeed the university, are community assets. As always, the value of an asset depends on its owner accepting responsibility for maintaining and appreciating it. I thank the Northern Territory Power and Water Authority (PAWA) for its support for NTCER. This has made possible a range of activities. For example, the Centre was able to assist PAWA with its renewable energy demonstration agenda, including two applications to the federal government for project funding; one successful, the other with outcome pending; while the NTU benefited from the work that went into preparing for the introduction of a Certificate IV in Renewable Energy next year.


Signed

Associate Professor Charles Webb

Pro Vice-Chancellor (Higher Education an Research).
