Hydro Tasmania CEO Stephen Davy joins the Energy Insiders podcast to discuss his hopes for the hydro-dominated island state to become the “battery of the nation”, and to help out Victoria when its brown coal generators stop production.

That proposal includes a new transmission link across Bass Strait, new pumped hydro facilities and more wind generation. And a rivalry with the proposed Snowy 2.0 scheme.

Plus: We catch up the news of the week.

You can also catch our interview with AGL’s head of distributed energy, Dominique van den Berg, and how the country’s biggest coal generator sees the transition to EVs, household solar and battery storage.
