Alice Springs: A holistic blueprint for the future grid
This event will be streamed from our Newcastle Division to the CQ University Gladstone Marina Campus.

This presentation will illustrate the current state and characteristics of the NT power system before examining a number of projects that demonstrate how large-scale uptake of renewable energy sources may be integrated into the system. The learnings gained from the Alice Springs power system will be applicable to the National Electricity Market, which will face similar constraints in the coming years. With a strong solar history, Alice Springs provides the ideal collaborative platform to demonstrate what the ideal power system looks like, producing a holistic future grid blueprint that includes customer, power system, industrial and regulatory components.

Please arrive at 4.30pm, webinar will commence at 5pm.  Venue location map here
