Prospecta Utilities’ renewable energy solutions receive national recognition

Prospecta Utilities’ renewable energy solutions were recognised last month at the Property Council of Australia’s Retirement Living Awards with client, GemLife, winning the RACV Solar Award for Sustainability for its virtual power plants (VPPs).

The Property Council’s national Retirement Living Awards are the industry’s most coveted and prestigious awards program that celebrates excellence across all parts of Australia’s retirement living sector.

Prospecta Utilites’ CEO Mark Langdon said he was proud to help GemLife achieve its sustainability goals through Prospecta’s fully customised renewable energy solutions.

“Our team couldn’t be happier to see GemLife take the win and receive recognition for its commitment to innovation and providing their homeowners with market-leading solutions for a sustainable future,” Mark said.

GemLife Director and CEO Adrian Puljich said it was an honour to be recognised on the national stage.

“We’re delighted by the win. Our first virtual power plant, which we unveiled just over a year ago, is the culmination of a lot of hard work and problem solving by the Prospecta Utilities’ team to develop a system that we can roll out across all our resorts,” he said.

Following a pilot program at GemLife Palmwoods, the VPPs are installed in their current form at GemLife resorts on the Sunshine Coast and Bribie Island. Work is underway to roll out the renewable energy solution at under-construction communities on the Gold Coast and Moreton Bay in South East Queensland.

“GemLife is leading the way in developing and implementing new technology across its developments,” said Mark.

Adrian added, “These innovations not only drive us forward in creating a sustainable future, but also provide tangible benefits to our homeowners today such as reliable, low-cost electricity which proves a welcome buffer against cost-of-living pressures.”
