Completing our walk-around-the-NEM, today we look at peak demand in Queensland over summer 2014-15
Continuing with our series of competitions today, we assembled the entries to see who was closest to the mark in predicting peak wind output over summer 2014-15, and so who…
Continuing the theme of investigating peak metrics over summer 2014-15, today we look at peak wind output (aggregate across the NEM).
One of our guest authors, a meteorologist, lends his expertise to helping us understand one of the reasons why peak demand for summer 2014-15 was what it was.
Who wins a consolation prize today, being closest to the flag in forecasting peak Tassie demand?
Today we have a look at what mark Tasmania reached with peak demand over “extended summer” 2014-15
So the winner for “best NSW peak demand forecaster” for summer 2014-15 is…
Continuing the theme started last week, today we look at what the peak NEM-wide demand was for “extended summer” 2014-15.
So the entrant who was VERY close to the mark in forecasting the peak demand in South Australia for this summer period is…
Continuing our walk around the NEM, today we analyse what happened with South Australian electricity demand over the extended summer period 2014-15 – with a particular focus on peak demand
Winning a consolation prize, for being closest to the mark in relation to peak Victorian demand this summer, is…
Following our assessment of NEM-wide demand this summer, we turn our attention to Victoria today to see how similar the story is for that region in particular.
Quick notes about three types of solar PV systems, at University of Queensland’s Gatton Solar Research Facility.
Who won the main prize, as “best demand forecaster in the NEM” for summer 2014-15?
Some analysis of what happened with NEM-wide demand this summer
The Nyngan large-scale solar PV plant started production in March – but, as shown here, large-scale solar has a lot of catching up to do to match current levels of small-scale solar PV production.
Some back-of-the-envelope calculations being a starting point to help me understand how much real contribution electric vehicles might make in feeding back into the grid when intermittent generation is absent.
Some initial analysis of the interplay between wind and solar in Australia’s National Electricity Market
Being first-of-a-kind (at least for which AEMO publish data) it’s worth noting that Nyngan solar farm has commenced operations.
Another high demand day yesterday (Thu 19th March) in Queensland – here’s a record
