Vestas senior vice president “outraged” by claims that renewables developers should foot the bill for grid upgrade costs as more wind and solar comes online.
The growth of rooftop solar in W.A. means the world’s biggest isolated grid could be a blueprint for the planning of a distributed energy system.
Victoria government changes state planning rules for grid connections for large-scale solar and wind energy development.
New South Wales Coalition govt unveils grid upgrade plan, to accommodate the “flood” of new renewable energy capacity in the state’s development pipeline.
New study shows that solar plants can provide flexibility for grid operator that reduces use of thermal generators and battery storage, and delivers even lower emissions.
South Australia becomes net electricity exporter for first time, 12 new wind and solar farms were added, the amount of large-scale solar tripled, and rooftop PV kept a lid on demand.
New data shows that energy consumers are paying more than they think in their bills, and more than what the regulator admits.
