A comment made by TransGrid at the Energy Networks 2018 conference today jolted me to update my (somewhat) outdated paradigm of declining demand.
Some thoughts, from one of our guest authors, on how the emergence of an east-coast LNG industry will impact on electricity demand.
It’s been reported that there appears to have been the addition of a large load in Queensland. Here we start to analyse.
Some analysis of how demand in Victoria has trended over 16 years – at least in part to help competition entrants provide their forecasts of what they think the peak Victorian regional demand will be for summer 2014-15
Spurred on by our competition (but with an interest that’s much broader) we have a look at how Queensland demand has trended – and find a couple of quite remarkable things occurring…
A longer-term look at how summer (peak and average) demand has trended over the 15 years of NEM history to date.
A brief look, during the day, of the effect that the Queensland heat wave is having on electricity demand within the state – and further across the NEM. It was a day of marked contrast in demand patterns in the north and the south.
By now our schools are full again, and businesses are back at work – so it is timely to review how electricity demand in the NEM trended through the holiday months of December and January.
A quick look at how NEM-wide demand has trended so far this summer (to define the starting point for our competition entrants).
This brief look raises questions about the demand seen in December 2011, so we compare against previous years.
Including more than a decade of data for Queensland’s peak electricity demand (pre-NEM) reveals a more nuanced picture.
Extending our analysis of the pattern of demand growth (NEM-Wide) to see if the pattern has been the same at a regional level.
A list of 10 factors that are impacting on electricity consumption across the National Electricity Market.
Further analysis of the way that electricity demand patterns (NEM-wide) are changing in Australia’s National Electricity Market
A brief summary of NEM-wide demand this winter
Prompted by Ben Skinner’s question, we’ve had a bit more of a look at demand patterns in the NEM (NEM-wide).
Some observations about where average demand in the NEM has trended over the 12 years of NEM history, following the work done in compiling the 2011 Issue of the “Power Trading Schematic” Market Map.
Some quick notes about how levels of demand are, so far this summer, much lower than they have been in recent years.
A listing of some drivers for higher (and, in some cases, lower) prices in the wholesale spot component of the NEM.
Inspired by the price spike experienced this evening, I have spent a little time to put together the background to winters in the NEM.
This will be useful in understanding the context of any other events that occur this winter, and are analysed on WattClarity.
Some notes (which will be updated later) about capital requirements for the Australian Electricity Supply Industry
