Further thoughts about Summer 2008-09 (the heatwave, bushfires, new demand peak, and blackouts)

Summer 2008-09 is now well behind us, and there are a number of official reviews underway that will report back at some stage.

Even so, we’ve been continuing to ponder a couple of things about what happened in January 2009 (particularly in VIC and SA) and will endeavour to post a couple of these thoughts within this topic progressively in the future.

Just keep in mind that:
1)  We’re just a bunch of geeks who watch the market, so may get some things wrong
(if we do goof it up, let us know and we’ll correct); and
2)   We still have our day-jobs (producing software) so will only be able to post as we have time.

Hope that this is of some assistance, nonetheless!
