Head in the air, feet on the ground: the highwire skills of a clean energy community relations coordinator
Acciona’s Kirsten Lee sees both sides of the story from rural communities as they learn to live with the enormous wind projects that are slowly pushing coal aside.
New analysis revealed less than half the extra pumped hydro capacity promised by Snowy 2.0 can be delivered.
Virtual power plants made up of other people’s batteries sound like a great idea but, gee, they’re a headache to put together. Will they make it to the finish line?
With more EVs on Australian roads, demand for charging infrastructure will grow and the CSIRO expects this will place stress on grid-powered charging stations.
A powerful counterpoint to our mounting garbage is the clean energy that can be harnessed from it – once communities understand the wonders of modern technology.
Governments took the hard road on clean energy – and consumers are feeling the bumps: Grattan Institute
The federal government’s market interventions have not worked. Electricity prices are higher and supply is tight. Consumers are not happy.
A form of long-duration storage that can be sited wherever it’s needed is edging closer to reality at two sites on the NEM.
Grants worth $7.1 million have been awarded to projects totalling 2,150MW of on-demand electricity, “with the potential to leverage almost $2 billion in private investment”.
Managing energy at the demand side can tick all the boxes of the energy trilemma, says Enel X managing director Asia and Oceania Jeff Renaud.
As the tools to generate and manage electricity onsite evolve, energy users are realising they can rely on themselves instead of leaning only on the grid.
Ten installations are competing in three categories: under 30kW, 30-240kW and over 240kW. Good luck!
Nowhere else in the world is as well positioned to produce, consume and export 100% green hydrogen, says South Australia’s energy minister.
Painful marginal loss factors, asset write-downs, negative pricing, forced curtailment – the forces have been stacked against large-scale solar this year. Is it time for a turnaround in fortunes … or time to pull up stakes?

While weighing an investment in forecast systems, plants owners have an opportunity to wait and see how the various methods are proven in the field, writes Dr Colin Bonner.
A report from GSES shows the significant relationship between PV arrays and battery days of autonomy in stand-alone power systems.
Damned if you do, damned if you don’t: how feed-in tariffs hold the key to energy incumbents’ future
The energy giants are looking down a barrel as households build their own rooftop generation. Research shows their prospects hinge on where they set feed-in tariffs.
The 300MWh energy storage system, called the Reservoir, will be coupled to a 200MW PV plant in the mid-north of the state.
The developers of a 36MW waste-to-energy project in Perth have seen the technology prove itself overseas and expect nothing less when it lights up here in 2021.
Australia can become a major renewable energy exporter while helping energy deficient countries in Asia to reduce their use of fossil fuels, writes Amar Rathore.
Wind turbines are growing to epic proportions. Higher and higher they go! But have you ever spared a thought for the people who put these giant propellers together?
