With every increasing uptake of variable PV and Wind generation and every increasing recognition of the need to decarbonise the whole energy system by around 2050, action needs to move to the options for Dispatchable Renewable Electricity. ITP lead a team that completed this study of options that was released by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency yesterday: Comparison-Of-Dispatchable-Renewable-Electricity-Options-ITP-et-al-for-ARENA-2018.pdf . The ARENA website (https://arena.gov.au/projects/comparison-of-dispatchable-renewable-electricity-options/ ) also allows download of 2 associated spreadsheet tools.
