Energy Insiders Podcast May 5

Wind and solar cancel gas transition


(NOTE: Please find May 15 Podcast – wind energy’s record low – here).

In this week’s edition of Energy Insiders, Giles Parkinson and David Leitch look at the dramatic events of the past week.

Suddenly, everyone is talking about 100 per cent renewable energy, including AGL, which admits that the gas transition won’t happen.

That’s because the plunging costs of solar and storage means gas cannot compete on cost or carbons, and battery storage is already a “no-brainer” in states like South Australia.

Also on the agenda is the doubling in solar tariffs. Is that good or bad? And a warp up of the solar and storage conference in Melbourne, and lots of other news.
