"Is the new Tesla mega-battery for South Australia the game changer it's made out to be? Tim Hollo, Executive Directer of The Green Institute, joins us from Visit http://therealnews.com for more stories and help support our work by donating at http://therealnews.com/donate.
The latest research from 2016 finds that a low-carbon electricity supply, based on current, economically operating technologies and proven resources is possible for Australia. We used spatial data for the whole of the Australian continent, at time increments of 1 hour to simulate suitable generator locations and new transmission networks. Nation-wide low-carbon electricity supply is possible at about 160 GW installed capacity, at cost of around 20 ¢/kWh, involving wind, concentrating solar, and PV utilities. The storage of renewable energy using hydro and biofuel plants is critical to plug gaps caused by occasional renewable low-resource period.
Renewable Energy Disruption in the Australian Electricity Industry To discuss the issues and situation are three very knowledgeable and respected speakers, Hugh Saddler – Hon A/Prof, ANU Crawford School of Public Policy – “Transition from a National Electricity Market perspective” Tristan Edis – Green Energy Markets - “Political aspects of the energy transformation “ Andrew Stock – Climate Council - “Situation in South Australia” Moderators – Ben Elliston, Senior Consultant at IT Power (Australia) and Monica Oliphant – Past President ISES and Adj A/Prof Uni SA
The renewable energy target is hard to understand for many consumers, so we made this video to make it easier and explain how it can make a positive impact on your household bills.

From the Film Australia Collection. Made by Film Australia 1982. Directed by Philip Robertson. Renewable Energy in Australia investigates how alternative forms of energy are harnessed using windmills, turbines, sun by solar energy systems and photovoltaic cells. These and other methods of utilising natural resources are demonstrated in this program. A broad spectrum from experimental work to commercial installations is covered in this general overview of renewable energy research in Australia. It looks at wind, water, solar and plant resources and for their potential use in tandem with traditional energy resources.
Hallelujah! Finally, a 150MW concentrated solar thermal plant in Port Augusta built by Solar Reserve (also involved in Gemasolar), for just $78/MWh!!! http://reneweconomy.com.au/giant-solar-tower-to-provide-all-s-a-government-electricity-needs-72106/ I have another interest now - staged terror.

It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

( This isn't a sponsored video, but I am massively grateful to all the team at SSE! Go look: http://sse.com/whatwedo/ourprojectsandassets/ , and pull down the description for more. ) As the world switches to renewable energy - and we are switching - there's a problem you might not expect: balancing the grid. Rotational mass and system inertia are the things that keep your lights from flickering: and they only appear in big, old, traditional power stations. Here's why that's a problem, and how we're likely going to fix it. Thanks to all the team at SSE! FULL DISCLOSURE: This is not a sponsored video, no money has changed hands, and SSE did not have editorial control. But they did go out of their way to arrange access and support for me and my team, including giving us safety training for w...
Remote locations such as Marble Bar and Nullagine in Western Australia, towns which are not connected to the grid, would typically rely solely on diesel fuel for their power. Instead, a microgrid solution from ABB is enabling multiple energy sources, maximizing the intake of solar power generation and minimizing diesel fuel generation.

Indonesia is perfectly placed to take advantage of the renewable energy revolution, according to research conducted by Australian National University and Institut Pertainian Bogor. Professor Andrew Blakers of the Australian National University explains how rapidly advancing technology, coupled with the unique natural environments of Australia and Indonesia, mean that solar and wind energy will not only be cleaner and greener than coal, but cheaper as well.
Over the past five years a quiet energy revolution has been taking place in Australia. It's built on the growth of solar power, especially rooftop photvoltaic (PV) solar sytems. In just five years the number of Australian solar PV systems went from 8,000 to 1,000,000 with ordinary Australians driving the change. It's a revolution that nobody saw coming.
