My final report covering learning about large centralised renewable generation


My scholarship ran from 2008 through until 2010.

I used my tenure of the scholarship principally to gain experience in the measures being applied internationally by transmission companies to manage the connection of large centralised renewable generation.

To this end, I spent a year and a half working in the British power industry – with consulting and transmission utility firms.

I also gained some insight into the situation throughout greater Europe and North America through technical visits, a couple of conferences, and involvement in an international working group.

My Final Report (in PDF) documents the impressions I gained from these experiences and my thoughts regarding how they might apply to the Australian context.
