Summer 2012-13 was a particularly volatile period in the Queensland region of the NEM.
On WattClarity, we posted numerous articles to discuss the unfolding activity, including:
- These comments on 15th January 2013 about an exceptionally volatile (and high demand) weekend.
- One animation of one particular day – 20th December 2012.
- A second animation for another volatile day – 2nd January 2013.
- This article in March notes how there were 175 dispatch intervals, over 3 months, where the QLD dispatch price was above $1,000/MWh
Questions rolled in, across the summer, so we engaged a market analyst on a short-term assignment to assist us in the preparation of a detailed, 3-part report. This report provided insights into a number of separate outcomes:
- About the temperature/demand correlation
- About changes to spot prices experienced
- About transmission constraints
- About available capacity; and
- About generator bidding
At the completion of this analysis, we offered the 3-part report for sale. Given the significance of the report coming off the back of that summer, a number of clients paid us $5,000 for the insights contained therein.
Whilst summer 2012-13 is now some years ago, some of the insights contained within the report are still valid today – hence we continue to offer the report to those for whom it is of interest, but now at the reduced rate of only $500 exGST.
Here’s the order form, if you would like your own copy.
