This report outlines some demand-side solutions that use energy more wisely, which could potentially secure hundreds of megawatts of electricity supply.
Finding that the incidence of loneliness in Australia is growing, this paper studies the long-term pattern of loneliness and identifies demographic characteristics and risk indicators associated with this experience.
The use of online social networking sites and how this may influence the experience and...
This paper argues that the floundering of carbon capture and storage (CCS) over the past decade means that we cannot rely on it to reduce emissions from electricity generation. That sector should be decarbonised through uptake of renewable energy, closure of fossil fuel power plants...
This research from the Australia Institute estimates the cost of online harassment and cyberhate to have cost Australians an estimated total of $3.7 billion dollars in health costs and lost income.
This analysis by the Australia Institute shows the Liddell power station broke down four times this year. These breakdowns were on high-demand summer days, when reliability is most important for electricity supply.
Australia’s newest coal plants, including ‘supercritical’ or so-called ‘High Efficiency, Low Emissions’ generators, have higher breakdown rates per gigawatt than older power stations, according to this research from the Australia Institute.
This research shows that gas and coal power plants broke down 135 times in 2018, breaking down at a rate of once every 2.7 days. While this could be expected of an aging coal fleet, the analysis shows that Australia’s newest coal power plants (so-called...
Victoria’s brown coal fired power stations suffer from frequent breakdowns and Loy Yang A is the responsible for largest number of breakdowns on the National Energy Market, since monitoring began in December 2017, and Loy Yang A’s Unit 2 is the most unreliable unit on...
This paper argues that Australia’s reliance on an ageing fleet of coal and gas power plants that are unable to cope with increasing temperatures and more frequent heatwaves is the single greatest threat to the energy security of our electricity system.
The February 2018 electricity update reviews the performance of the South Australian 'big battery.' The audit shows that Australia’s energy system is in transition, regardless of the political turmoil the change is creating.
