Solar and microgrids: Supplying electricity to the vast open spaces of the Australian outback cost effectively and with high levels of energy security is no easy task. Frank Tudor heads up the state-owned utility with that unenviable job in the sundrenched state of Western Australia, and his vision for doing so into the future is drawing inspiration from unlikely quarters.
