The WA Sustainable Energy Development Office and Shire of Carnarvon commissioned the Environmental Technology Centre to conduct a study into energy efficiency and renewable energy options for proposed ecotourism developments in the Ningaloo Outback Coast region. The study will develop a model taking into account many factors including building construction and thermal comfort, renewable resources (Wind, Geo-thermal, Solar and Biogas) and occupancy levels (current and projected) to determine the mix of generation systems that are most environmentally and cost effective for the specified nodal types of accommodation along the coast. This paper outlines the proposed work to develop the model and the work to date.
