A quick look at how ramp rates would vary (for “Unserved Consumption”) in the hypothetical “10x” high intermittency grid.
Areas of deeper analysis
Continuing our analysis of these hypothetical future scenarios to understand the shape of “unserved energy” and hence the potential contribution of Demand Response – today I post about energy spilled in a future with high intermittent generation supply.
Laying out the framework for the analysis I’m doing for my presentation at All Energy 2015 – about the role Demand Response might play in a future market dominated by intermittent generation
Sitting on the outside, looking in, this article sums up what seems to be the main areas of contention in the great Network Debate that’s been running the past couple years.

We saw Ryan Wavish present on this topic at All Energy 2014, and invited him to write an article for WattClarity highlighting some of the learnings of the ARENA-funded study.
Some thoughts about why we’ve been seeing an increase in the number of authorised electricity retailers competing in the Australian National Electricity Market, from a new guest author – Connor James
A snapshot of generator size, by ownership
Some back-of-the-envelope calculations about what electric vehicles might mean for the National Electricity Market, following on from my presentation at the EUAA Annual Conference
Some initial analysis looking into the question of whether the increased penetration of solar PV is increasing the variability of scheduled demand to the point that generators can exert more pressure on spot prices.
Why are we investing significant time in completing this review of what was remarkable price volatility in QLD over summer? We’re primarily a software company that develops shrink-wrapped products used by about 100 market participants, spectators and commentators.
WattClarity is one way we strive to help people make better decisions – by making the energy market clearer, and more understandable.
Do you know of someone who can help us to expand the scope of what we do in this space? Here’s details of the person we’re looking for…
