Providing insights to The Australian about the situation in South Australia

National Business Correspondent for The Australian, Annabel Hepworth published an article which details the concerns of big energy users in South Australia over high electricity prices after the recent turmoil in the state. Attempting to extend understanding on the situation Paul McArdle provided insights for the article, stating that blackout had “just put a two-week stop” to commercial concerns about the market “but the concerns continue”.

NEM-Watch Fuel Type Widget snapshot helps illustrate the state of South Australian energy generation after blackout

In an effort to talk around last week’s power blackout in South Australia to a wider audience, The Australian published a number of infographics on pg. 6 of their daily edition on Thursday, the 18th of October, 2016.

Included was an artistic reproduction of a snapshot taken from our NEM-Watch Widget from 4pm the previous day – as shown here:

The snapshot was used to compare the energy generation make-up for each state against their respective renewable energy targets

The Australian attributed this image to the SA Government, because they accessed the live chart on the SA Government website.

This location in the Department of State Development is the current location (as at October 2016) of the embedded copy of the NEM-Watch Fuel Type Widgets, one of the growing number of 3rd party “Host” locations that are choosing to embed this widget, which started its life at these two initial locations:

  1.  At RenewEconomy here; and
  2. On the NEM-Watch portal here.

 

BatteryFinder™ widget launched

Our BatteryFinder™ widget, launched in October 2016, continues to grow as a searchable/filterable ready reference to the makes and models of battery storage currently available on the Australian market.

BatteryFinder™ emerged as a milestone in the development of the broader national Energy Storage Register – as the Register requires a comprehensive (and continually updated) list of Makes and Models of battery storage technology available for use in Australia.

1) Battery Finder is embedded below.  You can both:
(a)  Search for particular battery systems of interest; and/or
(b)  Filter down the list, by clicking the facets on the left.

2) Don’t forget that there’s no charge to embed BatteryFinder™ on your own website – simply click on the “</> Embed” button on the widget below, provide your details and follow the instructions emailed to you.

3) Based on requests from some interested parties, we are also developing API access to Battery Finder data, which will be available at a modest charge.  Please email us if you would like to know more about this.

We’ll look forward to continuing to seeing the list below increase in numbers…
