A quick look at what a four-legged horse race does to electricity demand
Long-Term Market trends and forecasts
To augment today’s article in the Australian Financial Review, here’s an illustration of the growing oversupply.
Several things we’ve noticed about what’s been changing in the electricity retail landscape in Australia’s electricity markets.
Some analysis of carbon emissions for large generation portfolios in the NEM, and comparison with prior post about wind production levels.
A different look at the numbers suggests that AGL Energy does have some green credentials…
Following last week’s analysis of EnergyAustralia’s larger portfolio we do the same thing for AGL Energy (including Macquarie Generation)
Following the article in the FinReview today about EnergyAustralia…
Some thoughts about solar PV, and energy efficiency, and the effects they seem to be producing at home.
Some assorted thoughts about the RET, and the RET Review process currently underway
GSES recently gave a presentation at the APVI workshop in Brisbane as part of the International Battery Association conference.
The content of the presentation would be of interest to WattClarity readers, hence this guest post – which focuses on three possible future business models, that would mean very different outcomes to the incumbents that have become accustomed to “business as usual” over many years.
A thought-bubble, triggered by the recent knock-back at the ACCC of AGL’s bid to acquire Macquarie Generation
Second article by Paul Taliangis (of Core Energy) looking at some of the broader changes at work in the NEM.
Some observations about where the market for STCs seems headed, following my presentation at All Energy earlier in October.
A few thoughts from another guest commentator (Paul Taliangis @ Core Energy) about where gas-fired generation volumes look set to go.
A hypothetical case of what production patterns from wind might look like through a year with increased installed capacity of wind farms.
A more detailed look at how the percentage of energy supplied in the NEM from wind has risen to be 3.5% on an annual basis – though the degree of indeterminacy continues to be significant despite the growing diversification of wind farm sites.
Here’s a view of how daily wind farm production (by region, and NEM-wide) has trended over the 2013 calendar year to date – the correlation of output on a daily basis, and the contribution towards regional and NEM-wide demand
A chart and a table presented today at FutureGAS highlighting how the dominance of coal in power generation across the NEM is starting to shift.
Some analysis of the extent to which Demand Diversity (the degree to which peak demands in each region occur at different times) has changed in 15 years. If there are changes, it could be a factor at play in why peak demand has been changing.
A longer-term look at how summer (peak and average) demand has trended over the 15 years of NEM history to date.
