NEM-Wide demand peaked above 31,000MW on Friday

A quick post today to mark (with reference to our summer challenge) the highest demand across the NEM thus far – 31,099MW at 15:40 yesterday.  This is shown in this snapshot from NEM-Watch:

The highest NEM-wide demand in the NEM this summer (so far)

It’s useful to view this demand peak in the context of how peak demand has trended over 15 years.

Demand in Queensland is shown in the orange zone above – it rose a little more, to peak at 8304MW at 16:20 on the day (still 700MW or so off a record).
