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 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.
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.
This edition of the National Energy and Emissions Audit shows that the National Electricity Market (NEM) is transitioning to renewable energy despite political and policy uncertainty.
This resource outlines how rooftop solar delayed and reduced peak demand in the National Electricity Market (NEM) this summer. This improved the reliability of the grid, covering for coal-fired power plants during breakdowns.
The challenge for Australia’s electricity system is to meet demand during periods of extreme heat. On very hot days, electricity demand is driven to high levels that come close to exceeding the amount of power that the NEM can provide. Rooftop solar produces electricity most...
