AEMO’s goal of handling 100% instantaneous renewable penetration by 2025 is a significant challenge and fitting, given the pace the NEM is moving to support increasingly higher levels of instantaneous (and increasingly asynchronous) renewables regularly.
While this challenge may not be as pressing for all NEM regions, the need to identify methods/ technologies to enable higher asynchronous generation is a key objective in future-proofing the NEM. This is most pressing in South Australia which is already on the cusp of 100% instantaneous power but still has a key challenge ahead – removing gas unit directions.
In this Chart of the week, Jake Dunstan dives into renewable penetration in South Australia which is on the cusp of achieving 100% instantaneous renewable power. But as we point out, there is more to the story.
