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
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.
Another high demand day yesterday (Thu 19th March) in Queensland – here’s a record
Some analysis of how demand in Victoria has trended over 16 years – at least in part to help competition entrants provide their forecasts of what they think the peak Victorian regional demand will be for summer 2014-15
A few quick pointers (on New Year’s Eve) about where peak demand might land this summer in Tasmania – so you have a chance at winning Competition #6
A few pointers about where the peak South Australian demand might land this summer (relevant to our competition, and also for some very real considerations about the ongoing evolution of the NEM)
