So, I hear on the radio today that the electricity grid will come under pressure due to high temps across parts of Australia today and due to some expected & unexpected outages at some power generation units today. Had never paid it much attention as NSW / Sydney hasn't seen brown-outs / load sheding since the late 70's / early 80's. But just now had a quick look see at a site called NEMWATCH for current power generation v demand. http://www.nem-watch.info/widgets/reneweconomy/ From what I see, the ability to supply electricity across the national grid is running close to the wind and NSW is pulling power from QLD and Vic as I type to plug the gap. Guess that solar generation is pretty low after dark. Refer link. https://www.aemo.com.au/energy-syst...ricity-market-nem/data-nem/data-dashboard-nem As a quick and dirty I copied the data from the NEMWATCH site to show generation v demand. As noted, I haven't paid too much attention to gen v demand over the years and wonder if the fine balancing act I'm see now is par for the course or just the start of things to come given potential closures of coal fired power stations in NSW?
