Concerns of Energy Users
A collection of thoughts that have been bumping around in my head for some time about the latest push by various parties to facilitate a broader range of demand response in the NEM, and whether there are better options
In Michael’s fourth article of the series, he looks at the power of analysing electricity usage data to understand where and when users consume electricity so that they can identify cost saving opportunities.
In our guest author’s third article, Michael Williams comments on the growing trend for corporate energy buyers to contract directly with certain wind and/or solar plant for renewable energy supply over a longer-term time period. Mike shares some insights that could be of value to you, if you are involved in this areas.
In the previous article on reducing electricity costs we looked at energy efficiency and the fact that the cheapest electricity is the electricity that you don’t consume. In this article we will look at how to pay less for the…
We all know that electricity prices have escalated dramatically over the last couple of years. But did you know that it is possible to offset these increases and even achieve cost reductions in the face of increasing retail prices? Electricity…
Our guest author (Mike Williams) shares some practical tips for how energy users can brace themselves for the rising tsunami of energy costs
A listing of some drivers for higher (and, in some cases, lower) prices in the wholesale spot component of the NEM.
Some thoughts about drivers supporting higher fuel costs – and hence driving electricity prices higher in future (assembled from comments made at EUAA events, and elsewhere).
Some notes (which will be updated later) about capital requirements for the Australian Electricity Supply Industry
A high-level summary of some concerns of energy users, linked to a (progressively) growing number of more detailed posts that will be added over time.
