An energy security task force has supplied recommendations to the Tasmanian State Government. The recommendations will be implemented within the coming months. The State Government has acknowledged the need for a more conservative approach following the 2015 power crisis as reported by ABC News.

The report from the task force indicates no current problems with Tasmania’s energy security, however, provides some guidelines to keep security in check.

Tasmania’s current renewable attributes include:

  • 93% of power in Tasmania is renewable, predominantly from hydro power.
  • New wind farms will add 7% to renewable generation in the state, expected to be up by 2020 so Tasmania can meet its 2022 goal.

The Victorian Government’s Plan for Solar Aggregation

The Victorian government recently made a call for partners in a new solar pilot program. Although a trial program is always a small step, when viewed in context it’s one that provides an insight into where Victoria and other Australian states and territories will need to go in future: to continue to encourage solar panel uptake, while also properly managing the byproduct of it so an oversupply of energy isn’t fed into the grid.
