Greentech Media | Australia’s Fire-Hit Grid Braces for an Even Bigger Threat

Ben Cerini our principal consultant discussed the impact of the Australian’s fires on the grid and the three major grid incidents that could be directly traced to fires this summer.

He stated that despite these setbacks, the consensus is that Australia’s electricity networks are coping well given the level of environmental destruction caused by bush fires this summer.

AEMO has done quite a good job of responding to the changing conditions in the market this summer and has on multiple times, where there were dangers to the network, invoked constraints on interconnection between regions.
