How is the grid dealing with current issues, and how is it shaping up for the future? This week, the authors of the Generator Report Card, a 650-page tome looking at every nook and cranny in the National Electricity Market, join Energy Insiders to discuss their findings.

Paul McArdle and Jonathon Dyson have been working for some time on the report and share there insights into how the generators are performing, and the issues facing the market operator, rule makers and regulators.

Also, we look at the news of the week, particularly AGL’s revelation that one of its units at the Loy Yang A coal generator will be out of action for seven months, and it’s decision to re-look at the old idea of merging utilities and telcos as the key to engaging and profiting from a distributed energy future.

And, finally, we also see how the divide between the institutions heading to the future, and the politics locked in the past, grows ever wider.
