Terrajoule  Australis     11   •  Australia  will  be  the  first  country  for  Terrajoule’s  product.     In  the  developed  world  it  has  the  biggest  need.     Large  land  mass  with  a  wide-­‐spread  popula;on.     Some  popula;on  centres  too  small  and  too  distant  to  warrant   electricity  grid.     Similar  for  mine  sites,  factories,  army  camps,  agricultural   needs/farms  etc.     Successful  deployment  easier  than  many  SE  Asian  countries   e.g.  language,  laws,  corrup;on  &  technical  differences.   terrajoule  australis  
  • 12. Terrajoule  Australis     12    We  are  Australian  –  our  own  back  yard  comes  first.    We  know  Australia  and  what  we  need  &  can  do.    Successful  roll-­‐out  =  proof  to  the  world  &  kudos.   We  have  had  an  overwhelming  response  from  Australian   companies  interested  in  the  alterna0ve  energy  sector  and   from  Government.   Northern  Territory  has  a  big  need  and  we  are  engaged  in   well  developed  discussions  and  plans  with  its   Government   terrajoule  australis  
  • 13. terrajoule  australis   Profile  of  Northern  Territory  Needs     Large  number  of  indigenous  communi;es.     Mandate  to  provide  power  and  facili;es.     Distances  from  power  grid  and  popula;on  centres  great.     Generally,  sunlight  readily  available.     Diesel  usage  high  and  very  expensive.     Diesel  transport  difficult  &  costly.     Costs  will  increase  with  ;me.     Simple  to  operate.   Same  with  WA,  SA  and  Queensland.    Also  need  for  farms,   mining  camps,  army  sites,  factories  etc.     Terrajoule  Australis     13
