Dan Lee tracks the demand forecasts against the actual outcome in QLD last Friday afternoon. The final result was as much as ∼1,000MW lower than the maximum forecast of demand published by the AEMO, which alludes to the inherent difficulty of electricity market forecasting.
With demand beginning to rise sharply output at Queensland’s four wind farms has been muted so far this afternoon.
The RERT has been dispatched for 5:30PM this afternoon in Queensland
QLD may be down 200MW of available generation with record demand currently being forecast for late this afternoon.
An AEMO market notice from yesterday afternoon declares that an extra 50MW has been made available on the QNI interconnector.
Our fourth article looking forward to this Friday afternoon (3rd February 2023) in the Queensland region, where successive AEMO STPASA forecast data is showing considerable variability about what peak demand might be for the QLD region (it *might*, if predictions turn into reality, smash the prior all-time record). Dan Lee looks into how the demand forecast has been evolving and what to watch for this Friday afternoon.
Dan Lee uses our hot-off-the-press GSD2022 to examine the Q4 revenue figures that Genex Power recently released for Jemalong Solar Farm.
A short note marking today’s release of the AEMO’s QED for Q4 2022 and the subsequent media coverage thus far.
A release from the AER states that SA’s Minister for Energy and Mining has triggered the RRO (and hence MLO) in South Australia for Q1 2026.
In light of recent events, Dan Lee does some digging to find historical incidences of islandings and transmission tower failures.
Close to $31.5M of revenue was generated in the FCAS markets in SA over the seven days that the region was frequency separated from the rest of the NEM. This follow-on from Allan O’Neil’s earlier article investigates this final figure.
An email alert notified me of a sudden drop in wind and solar generation (primarily in VIC and SA) at around 3pm this afternoon.
Last week the AEMO released a preliminary report into the trip of the South East – Tailem Bend 275 kV line that caused SA to be islanded from the rest of the NEM for over a week.
Today the AEMO released a 101-page engineering framework report on the steps required to operate the NEM at 100% instataneous penetrations of renewables.
A rule change increasing the Administered Price Cap from $300/MWh to $600/MWh, submitted by Alinta Energy, has come into effect today.
QLD looks like it will be without Callide’s C3 unit until at least February 2023.
Administered Pricing has ended for FCAS in SA after roughly 12 days.
A quick look at rooftop solar PV forecasts after ElectraNet’s chief executive warns about overproduction of distributed energy generation later in the week.
Dan Lee takes a quick look at 5-second frequency data to show SA’s separation from the rest of the NEM and the ensuing frequency swings on late Saturday afternoon.
