Eels are amazing creatures, instinctively swimming up rivers to mature. That gets complicated when they get confronted with the wall of a hydro dam that’s about 30 metres high. But our aquatic scientists have come up with a novel solution.

Historically the communities on Flinders and King Island have relied on diesel generators to keep the lights on, but that has changed thanks to our hybrid energy solutions.
