This report outlines some demand-side solutions that use energy more wisely, which could potentially secure hundreds of megawatts of electricity supply.
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...
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.
This submission argues that establishing a nuclear power industry in Australia is economically unfeasible, particularly given the uninsurable nature of the technology means the risks of a nuclear incident are borne substantially by Australian taxpayers.
