Topic:
"Challenges of operating in an integrated energy market"

Abstract:
Today's Australian energy environment represents a complex system of engineering, commerce and markets. High frequency electricity markets, coal markets, gas markets, transport services, renewable certificates, solar subsidies, feed in tariffs, energy storage, transmission and distribution and retail bundling are all involved. On top of that, our politicians would like to add grid reliability and emissions targets. 

This presentation will give an overview of how these concepts interact through the marketplace and discuss the commercial challenges of operating in an integrated energy environment. 

An audio recording of the presentation is available here (audio commences at 5.15 minutes)

In offering the Energy Express Seminars, we aim to bring multidisciplinary research capability together on some of the significant energy challenges facing today’s world and connect that capability with industry and government partners. The series is designed to provide a regular forum to present and discuss a range of energy-related topics and themes. They are open events, and bring together industry, government, and the broader UQ community including academics, researchers, students and alumni.

All seminars will start at 6.00pm, with light refreshments to follow. Guest speakers will be announced in due course.

This year again, we especially welcome our Master of Sustainable Energy students - the timing of our seminars is scheduled to coincide, where possible, with the eight core teaching blocks that they will undertake throughout the year.

We encourage and welcome comments and feedback and look forward to engaging with you on global energy challenges.
