The increased takeup of renewable energy in recent years has exerted substantial pressure on Australia’s electricity grid; all coming at a time when having a stable energy source is paramount.
As the country continues to witness extreme weather conditions that continue to ravage through the nation particularly in the east coast and other communities, more and more Aussies are finding themselves disconnected from the grid, and therefore having a resilient power system in place is a must.
A Recovering Nation
According to a new report dubbed the Health of the National Electricity Market, emphasis has been laid on the important role played by a resilient energy system in the recovery process from damage caused by the deadly bushfires.
Given the mounting alerts that extreme weather will only become more commonplace, experts and industry critics are urging the government to take quick measures.
The report further noted that the present situation requires serious attention sooner than later, as weather patterns become more and more unpredictable.
From bushfires, heatwaves, floods, severe storms to rapidly rising temperatures, Australia is one country on the globe that’s proving to be under siege from the effects of climate change as years go by.
Coupled with fluctuating weather systems, things like the outdated infrastructure and unproductive coal generators also contribute to this problem.
More Aussies Turning To Renewable Energy
The report which was released last week also included concerns that a surge in variable renewable sources of energy and some other resources like wind and solar energy would eventually make it difficult in ensuring the current system remains stable and secure.
