Energy system future – the hot topic in South Australia

More than 800 representatives from about 230 Australian and international organisations are in Adelaide this week discussing the future of the energy system.

South Australia is at the frontier of the global energy transformation as major power stations close to make way for increasing penetration of renewable energy sources – a change that has challenged power system security.

Energy Networks Association CEO, John Bradley, will today tell delegates at Energy Networks 2016 that the industry is in an ‘egg and spoon’ race on behalf of energy consumers.

“We must execute a rapid transformation in the energy system without compromising the delicate balance of affordability, sustainability and reliability,” Mr Bradley said ahead of his address.
