Winning a consolation prize, for Competition #4


On Tuesday we were pleased to announce the winner of our main prize.

But the show’s far from over yet, with many other entrants still in the running for their own consolation prize – this portable barbeque (we’re giving 6 of these away):

Here's the consolation prize that's being given to our 6 other winners

In Competition #4, we asked entrants to correctly forecast what the peak Victorian demand would be.

This morning I posted this analysis of what’s been happening with Victorian peak demand, including the fact that the demand peak was almost 2,000MW (or 20%) below the all-time record – and amazingly 1,600MW lower than the level achieved only 12 months beforehand.

Congratulations to Elijah Pack at the AEMO, as you were only 42MW off the correct number with your entry.
