    Episode 22: Surging renewable energy generation and the role of storage

    Episode 22: Surging renewable energy generation and the role of storage

    There's no doubt that electricity markets across Australia are in the midst of a profound transformation with aging coal and gas fire generation leaving the market, and being replaced by large scale solar and wind capacity. The pace and scale of this change has and will continue to be rapid with various ambitious state targets further accelerating the transition. In our latest podcast, Energetics’ energy market experts Mark Asbjerg, Anita Stadler and Gilles Walgenwitz discuss the implications of this surging renewable energy capacity. Are we going to have too much? How can generators continue to make a return on their investment in such a market? And what is the value of storage moving forwards?
    Featuring: Anita Stadler, Head of Renewable Energy Investments and Gilles Walgenwitz, General Manager - Energy and Carbon Markets
    Our host: Mark Asbjerg, Principal Consultant
