Key initiatives at RQ

Embedded energy

Anticipated for install in 2024, Rhodes Quarter will benefit from 100% Climate Active-certified carbon neutral energy via embedded network operator ‘Real Utilities’. This network will use energy infrastructure at Rhodes Quarter to take advantage of the renewable energy sources and energy efficient technologies available - think solar panels, batteries, air conditioning systems, smart meters, electric vehicle charging, and more. Real Utilities will then combine this with energy sourced from the grid, using buying power and benchmarking prices against the publicly advertised rates of the three biggest energy retailers in the area to receive the most competitive energy rates.
