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.

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.
