The Queensland poll result, the COAG meeting, and an interview with the lead author of the new Finkel report on energy storage.
Energy storage is the topic du jour in the Australian energy industry at the moment, particularly with the start-up of the Tesla big battery in South Australia this week, and the numerous other battery and pumped hydro projects across the country.
Bruce Godfrey, who headed the Australian Council of Learning Academies talks of the findings on what has been branded the new Finkel review on energy storage sector in Australia – and the roles, needs and opportunities for battery storage, pumped hydro, and other forms of storage, including wind and solar “fuels” -not to mention the behind the meter market.
Godfrey joins regular insiders Giles Parkinson and David Leitch to talk of this, and of course the results of the Queensland poll, the COAG meeting on the National Energy Guarantee, and the recent sale of Loy Yang B and what it means for the future of coal.
