There are four separate utility assets owned by CleanPeak Barangaroo and CleanPeak Barangaroo Thermal which collectively supply the cooling, heating and electricity needs of the Barangaroo South Precinct. This infrastructure is integral to tenant resident and visitor experience and are strategically positioned throughout the precinct to supply relevant services.
- District Cooling Plant (DCP)
The DCP primarily provides chilled water for the purposes of air-conditioning to each buildings’ Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) infrastructure. The DCP serves all buildings within the precinct, across commercial, retail, Crown and residential.
- Building Heating System (BHS)
The BHS has been developed to provide hot water and space heating via heated water used in the building HVAC systems. The scheme consists of four independent gas fired heating systems, located in each building where the services are provided. The BHS currently services the Daramu House
commercial building and will service the three One Sydney Harbour (OSH) buildings in the future.
- Embedded Network (EN)
The electrical supply for Barangaroo South Precinct is via the EN, which is a privately owned and operated HV network. It supplies power to all buildings within the precinct, the public domain, and the DCP and BHS systems.The triplex supply is a highly reliable configuration used by Ausgrid within the Sydney CBD precinct, and a similar design has been used to supply Barangaroo. In addition, where applicable and in consultation with Ausgrid, electrical assets have been procured and installed in alignment to Ausgrid standards. The EN thus delivers very high supply reliability consistent with the rest of the CBD.The network consists of a combination of basement substations, basement control points and elevated substations located throughout the precinct. It maintains a monopoly network service (retail energy services are competitive) for each customer (building and tenant) within the precinct by enabling and facilitating the access to retail energy.
- Solar Panel Network (SPN)
The SPN contains a system of PV panels currently installed on the rooftop of 7 buildings throughout the precinct. The total installed PV capacity is estimated to 950kW. Power generated through the panels is sold via Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) to the building on which the PV is installed, and this offsets the grid power required for the common areas within the building.
