Forecast for a moderate burst of wind to round out the month or June 2024

As readers here would have noted, the month of June 2024 has seen a continuation of the disconcertingly low wind harvest that we saw through April and May 2024 (barring a few spurts, like a new all-time maximum point late (at 8,431MW) on Thursday evening 30th May.

Checking out the current AEMO forecasts for the coming week, out till (almost) the end of the month – as seen in the ‘Forecast Convergence’ widget in ez2view at the 15:20 dispatch interval today:


Remember that this widget allows the user to ‘look up a vertical’ in order to review ‘that other dimension of time’ 

In this case we see a moderate burst of wind yield forecast in AEMO’s most recent forecasts – which would:

1)  Span a ~24 hour period from the middle of the day Tuesday 25th June out till the middle of the day Wednesday 26th June;

2)  Reaching ~5,500MW (which would be 65% of the way to the recent all-time maximum)

3)  Apart from that burst, the colours are quite muted for the rest of the week.
