SPU Technology to Limit Bushfire Risks


The 2019–2020 bushfire season burnt over 17 million hectares of land, costing Australia over 103 billion and affecting communities across NSW, ACT, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, and South Australia.
Hitachi Energy have designed a solution to further reduce the risk of bushfires from the electricity grid, in particular to eliminate the fire risk posed by overloaded equipment on distribution networks.
