Following the closure of the Hazelwood Power Station, Victoria is facing particular challenges for continuing supply of reliable and affordable electricity while substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation. While it is likely that about one-half of Victoria’s supply will continue from brown coal power stations for several decades, there is a strong focus and drive to introduce a much greater proportion of renewables into the power system. In the longer term the majority of supply may be sourced from a range of renewables. And greater reliance on renewables requires additional solutions in the transmission, distribution and electricity management systems.
The symposium will bring together leading speakers from the government, regulation, industry and research communities to explore options and opportunities to maintain supply of reliable and affordable electricity while substantially reducing the greenhouse gas intensity of electricity generation. The symposium will explore challenges and solutions in electricity generation, transmission and distribution. It will explore the state’s electricity future from the perspective of suppliers’ and users’,addressing electricity generation technology options for Victoria, marginal abatement cost projections, and the evolving role of networks and demand management.
