SEN Presents - Monday 27 March 2017

A renewable energy electricity system – what will it look like?

Various analyses, including by SEN, have shown the feasibility of transitioning the SWIS to renewable energy in the coming decades.  Professor Bill Grace will discuss his study that focusses on:

  • how network loads will likely change over time due to rooftop solar and onsite energy storage;
  • the implications of these changing load profiles for operation of the network at both the distribution and transmission scale; and
  • the role of large scale renewables and energy storage in serving this modified network.

Bill Grace is a Fellow of Engineers Australia with over 30 years of experience in infrastructure and development in Australia and internationally. He is an independent sustainability adviser, researcher and consultant, and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Western Australia’s Urban Design Research Centre. He was previously GHD’s Sustainability Manager, with an overarching role to provide a sustainability focus to GHD’s international business. http://www.ghd.com/australia/

Bill uses systems analysis and modelling to support concept level sustainable infrastructure design studies that can be used to inform planning from the building to the nation scale. The interactive models compare business-as-usual infrastructure provision with local scale decentralised renewable energy and alternative water supply solutions.

We will also have a quick election wrap-up - where to for renewables?
