More work required to ensure energy system security

Energy Networks Association (ENA) CEO, John Bradley, said the findings of a joint study released today show that the high penetration of renewable energy in Australia is stretching our energy system’s resilience.

The study by the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) and ElectraNet, operator of South Australia’s transmission network, sought to identify the limits to the secure operation of the South Australian power system.

“This study places Australia at the frontier of managing large scale system security issues,” Mr Bradley said.
