‘Maximising Value in the NEM’, with a particular focus on Large Solar Farms

On Thursday 21st May, Marcelle Gannon and Jonathon Dyson jointly shared a large number of insights and tips to help those interested in developing and/or operating Large Solar Farms in the NEM maximise the value they receive. Useful also for those interested in Wind Farms (i.e. any Semi-Scheduled plant), and also hybrid operations using Batteries.




Queensland Energy Forum

As was mentioned in a previous post the topic which was most topical was the topic of increasing distribution network charges. The Queensland price increase proposals have not been approved yet, but based on the history of New South Wales, there is a widespread expectation that they will get approved.


The North Queensland Energy Forum

The North Queensland Energy Forum is an annual conference held in Townsville for the discussion of energy related issues. The forum started off with a welcome dinner and networking event on Monday evening. The food was good and the company interesting. The meat and potatoes of the event arrived on Tuesday where sixteen different speakers presented topics as diverse as nuclear electricity generation to distribution network operations to sugar cane based cogeneration plans.


Rising Energy Prices, More Than Meets The Eye

Over the past two days I have attended the annual Energy Users Association of Australia conference, in which I have heard a number of speakers from various walks of life talk about issues that are relevant to large energy users.


Lessons learned at the All Energy Conference

I’ve spent the last two days at All-Energy’s first Australian green energy conference and exhibition, set in Melbourne. I was sent down to learn as much as possible, and meet new contacts who may benefit from what we do. I didn’t know what to expect, but the conference proved to be informative and a very effective networking opportunity.
