A partnership between an e-scooter provider and eco-friendly ride service in South Australia is helping to keep the process green from start to finish.
It is not possible to build a network that could withstand anything and everything, and it would be prohibitively expensive to try, but it is possible to design networks so that critical parts can withstand severe weather and others can recover more rapidly to ensure that customers have power at a time when they may need it the most.
Typically, governments focus on incident response, trying to manage the event and its aftermath. International agencies such as the United Nations, through its International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, encourage an approach that supports risk reduction and preparedness. Evidence shows that every dollar spent reducing risk prior to an event replaces the $4 that would need to be spent on recovery and response
A unique 500-page report card – the Generator Report Card – that maps the history of the National Electricity Market since its creation two decades ago, along with some observations and warnings about the hurdles ahead.It is published by Global-Roam, the Brisbane-based data wonks and market analysts who provide the popular NEM-Watch widget and who write from time to time on the website Watt Clarity.
This report is so chock full of details that it is too much to cover in one article. More stories will inevitably emerge over time as we digest the data-rich pages, but here are some initial observations that leapt to our attention.
First detailed generation report highlights growing influence of renewables on the grid but notes the transition has only just begun, and there are hurdles ahead.
Our reason for existence is to make complexity (in the energy market) more understandable – so people can make better decisions. These decisions include shorter-term decisions (e.g. operational, trading, etc…) and also longer-term decisions (related to strategy, business development and government policy). The people making the decisions we assist with can be found all the way up and down the organisation chart, across a very broad range of energy market participants, spectators and commentators – and other stakeholders in the broader energy supply industry.
A renewable energy project that started as a way to provide extra income for grape and citrus growers has built its 50th solar farm in South Australia.
More than 390,000 solar panels have been installed at the $200 million project, east of Adelaide, and will produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of around 40,000 South Australian homes, with economic benefits flowing from the project to the Tailem Bend region.The solar farm came into full operation earlier this year, after having to be pared down from its original 108MW capacity due to connection and system constraints,
Tailem Bend solar farm formally opened as developer eyes the next stage for project expansion and large-scale battery storage in South Australia
"When asked what sort of talents would people see at the talent show the disgraced Cardinal talked up the show saying: “Jail is such a broad church so to speak, there will be some magic, a bit of comedy, music a lot of musicians in here especially fiddlers for some reason and I will get up and sing my favourite song, ‘Let’s Hear It For The Boy’ it’ll be a fantastic afternoon of entertainment.”
“The result is 30 times more power than a traditional AA battery, and best of all, is fully recyclable, free of toxic corrosive materials, is non-hazardous unlike kerosene, and will dramatically reduce disposable battery waste in landfills.”
Australian firm brings chemical free energy storage device to market – seeking to provide long term backup storage that only requires the addition of water.
Solar and wind power are both blighted by unreliability, reliant as they are on sunshine and wind that isn't always available. But huge advances in battery t...
CEO and Founder, Boyan Slat, details the design modifications for System 001/B. These upgrades entail two options to speed up the system or slow it down. Additionally, by taking a modular approach to the design, we can iterate at a much swifter speed and adjust the technology as we learn more. All with the aim of reaching proof of technology and commencing cleanup of The Great Pacific Garbage Patch as soon as possible.
