As the NEM’s transition continues, so too does the pressure on traditional baseload generators. 2019 saw variable renewable generation supply 25% of electricity in the NEM, a share the CER expect to grow to 34% by 2023 – increasing the likelihood of an earlier economic exit of coal fired generators.
Through the proposed Marinus Link and Battery of the nation however, Tasmania provide the answer to the NEM’s transition. Tasmania already has an ambitious 200% renewable energy target by 2040, coupled with the nation’s leading Hydrogen strategy which could see a commercial export facility operational by 2030. Adding to this, Marinus could unlock the island state’s renewable resources for the mainland’s benefit – speeding Victoria’s journey towards 50% renewables, firming NSW more efficiently than in-state storage and facilitating the nation’s journey towards decarbonisation.
It is in this atmosphere that Informa Australia are delighted to announce the 2nd annual Tasmanian Energy Development Conference. Featuring a comprehensive two-day programme, this forum of national significance will examine how increased transmission linkage with Tasmania would not only provide stability on the NEM, but potentially billions in market value and development – both in Tasmania and across the mainland.
Key Topics Include:
- Analysis of the forthcoming ISP and how it will shape Marinus, Battery of the Nation and the wider NEM
- Updates from renewable developers on their operational assets and proposed projects
- Commentary from government representatives on state & federal initiatives, policy and future plans
- Mainland Insights: Leading Victorian and NSW bodies on the benefits of increased interconnection
- The Hydrogen Economy: Tasmania’s nation-leading plan to support industry and create an export hub by 2030
- Investment opportunities and attracting capital in the current climate
- Developing the skills capacity required for major energy projects
- Stakeholder representation and strategies to ensure local content and local jobs for the regions we operate in
