UK Utility Company Powers E-Base Goes Live27th February, 2008
The focus of the E-Base Goes Live project is to utilize the latest technologies in wind and solar to operate all of the equipment required to sustain daily life on King George Island, Antarctica for 2 weeks, as well as power all of the technological equipment in the field needed to communicate the experience.
This year, nPOWER has partnered with 2041 to make the E-Base project a success, and will be powering the energy side of the E-Base in Antarctica. npower have created a bespoke renewable energy plan that will enable the E-Base to be self-sufficient and run completely on wind, solar and solar thermal components.
