“The Australian” used NEM-watch Live Generation widget to illustrate fuel mix

In his article “Rush to renewables as coal cools” in the Australian on Thursday 7th September, Andrew White used a reproduction of the RenewEconomy-sponsored NEM-Watch Fuel Type Widget to help his readers understand the fuel mix that was occurring for one 5-minute period (the 16:30 “dispatch interval”) the previous day.  The widget also has been designed to help those not so familiar with – part of our effort to help with Energy Literacy in more general terms.

For those who did not see it, here’s the image (with a few clarifications, to help with the understandability):

We appreciate every opportunity to help people understand what’s happening in Australia’s energy sector (particularly the “National Electricity Market”), and would invite readers to visit the live copy of the NEM-Watch Widget to watch as the fuel mix changes through each and every day.

No charge, if you want to embed this on your website – thanks to the widget’s sponsor, RenewEconomy!  Just click the <EMBED> button on the widget and follow the instructions.
