Tristan Edis from Green Energy Trading discusses whether a surge in renewable energy projects and battery capacity would be sufficient to fill any reliability gap before (and after) Eraring’s scheduled closure.
Liddell power station
AEMO has confirmed our earlier hunch of a Scheduling Error in the immediate aftermath of the Liddell unit retirements.
Guest author, Allan O’Neil, publishes some analysis for WattClarity on price and generation mix changes apparent in the NEM coincident with (but not wholly caused by) the closure of the last remaining units at Liddell Power Station.
During early morning Monday 1st May prices spiked in the NSW quite unexpectedly. Guest author Allan O’Neil takes us into the complexities of the EMMS and NEMDE to help us understand the mechanics of how this happened.
Taking a second look at the very early morning volatility in the NSW region on Monday 1st May 2023, we’ve used the ‘Constraint Dashboard’ widget in ez2view to get so far … and then added some *speculation* about how it might have been related to the retirement of Liddell from market systems. Is this accurate?
Liddell Unit 1 ramped down it’s output to 0MW at roughly 10:30am this morning, signaling the full retirement of Liddell Power Station.
As many know, Liddell Unit 1 is slated to close today (the last of the 4 units), Friday 28th April. Unfortunately coincident with that, AEMO is forecasting LOR2 low reserve condition for the middle of the afternoon tomorrow, Saturday 29th April 2023.
A short article to mark the closure of Liddell unit 2 on Wednesday evening, 26th April 2023.
A quick note to show the last dispatch interval of output from Lidell Unit 4, with the two remaining units slated to follow suit in the coming days.
Latest data from AEMO (from Fri 14th April) suggests Liddell unit 4 might close a couple days later than when we’d looked in February.
Around eight days till the scheduled closure of Liddell’s next-to-close unit (and prompted by an article in the AFR), we take a quick look at how they’ve been bidding.
Given the significance of the event (Reserve Trader almost triggered on Thursday 16th March – 34 days till the closure of Liddell Unit 4) we’re investing some time in exploring more detail of the event. This is Part 1.
Drawing from GenInsights Quarterly Update for Q4 2022, and the next version of our ez2view software, we take a look at the *current* expectations for closure of Liddell Power Station (within weeks) and Eraring Power Station (in 2025). A segue into this week’s update to the ESOO, perhaps?
Guest author, Allan O’Neil, takes the release of the GSD2022 as an opportunity to take a look at the past 10 years of performance of the four-unit Liddell Power Station (one unit closed in 2022 and three to close soon in 2023), contrasting against two other black coal-fired stations.
Tweet at your own peril A quick mea culpa: after squinting at an ez2view layout early this morning I dashed off a tweet suggesting that six of AGL Energy’s eleven coal-fired generation units were offline – three at Bayswater, two…
Liddell unit 3 has closed this morning.
More changes to retirement schedules in the market prompt me to power up the ‘MT PASA DUID Availability’ widget in ez2view once again…
Saw an update from the AER this evening pertaining to Liddell unit 3, and had a quick look with the power of the Generator Statistical Digest 2020.
Guest author, Nick Bartels, follows on from his article last week to see what the GSD2020 can inform of the challenges AGL Energy is facing with Bayswater, Liddell and Loy Yang A coal-fired power stations
Following last week’s ASX & Media Release, this week’s half-year results presented by AGL Energy has more questions being asked. Here are some …
