Abstract

The history and performance of renewable energy driven desalination plants in Australia are reviewed. Included are the 3 500 m 2 of solar stills built in South Australia in 1966, the two small scale photovoltaic reverse osmosis (RO) plants currently operating in Central Australia, a larger containerised photovoltaic RO plant from Western Australia, a Wind Powered RO Plant in Shark Bay, Western Australia, and two experimental Windmill powered RO plants designed at Murdoch University. The continuing research and development program at Murdoch University on the application of energy recovery systems, pump optimisers and array trackers for photovoltaic RO plants is also described.
