AIE Sydney | Snowy II's contribution to long term storage
Presented by Gordon Wymer, Chief Commercial Officer
It is widely recognised that dispatchable electricity generation is needed to support increasing variable renewable wind and solar energy. Some of this support is required short term and can be provided by a variety of means.
Modelling has shown that longer term storage, extending for days, weeks or even months, will be required to support renewables through the seasonal variations in electricity supply and demand. Pumped hydro, and particularly large schemes such as Snowy II, can make a significant contribution in this area. Tune into this presentation to hear about the Snowy II project and particularly its contribution to seasonal storage.
