    Applied Energy Storage

Australia is likely to install 15 GW of wind and solar PV over 2018-20. If continued post-2020, this rate would place Australia on track to reach 50% renewable electricity in 2024 and thereby meet the Paris greenhouse targets 6 years early. The requirements for supporting 50-100% renewable electricity are straightforward: stronger interstate interconnection to smooth out local weather and large-scale storage, in the form of pumped hydro and batteries. These themes will be addressed in the presentation.
