Energy Networks Australia and CSIRO have published the Electricity Network Transformational Roadmap final report
The Electricity Network Transformational Roadmap includes new state-by-state analysis by CSIRO, highlighting when energy security and cost risks will emerge in key locations and need to be addressed in a national energy transition plan.
Roadmap analysis found that by 2030, around 40% of both Victoria’s and Western Australia’s energy could be generated by intermittent renewables as is the case in South Australia today. New South Wales and Queensland are expected to follow suit in the 2030s as coal-fired power generators shut down.
The roadmap also addresses the issue of tariffs, citing a move to fair and efficient network charges for residential and small consumers before 2021 as critical.
