In this edition of the Energy Insider’s podcast, we talk to Andrew Kingsmill, the planning manager at Transgrid, on planned new links and upgrades that will help accommodate the boom in renewables, why bigger lines could be better, and what the network operator thinks of all the rules and regulations.

We talk virtual batteries as a substitute for grid upgrades, the problem of marginal loss factors, and why synchronous condensers are unlikely to be the long term solution for a renewables dominated grid.

And we look at AEMO’s scenario planning for its 20-year blueprint, including the ‘step change’ option that respects the science and will show politicians and policy makers a path to a decarbonised grid.
