The Australian Institute of Energy (AIE): Extreme Weather Events – Operational and Planning Implications for the Energy Sector webinar

Thursday 23 Jul

About this event

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has confirmed that one of the key modelled impacts of anthropogenic climate change is an increase in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events. Australia is particularly susceptible to such events, ranging from prolonged heatwaves to droughts, severe storms and the extraordinary bushfires we experienced last summer.

These events directly impact on energy supply and demand and pose risks to critical power system infrastructure. It is therefore becoming increasingly important for the power system to be resilient to such events, both now and in the future.   

Brian Nelson will discuss recent extreme weather events and their impacts on electricity system and market operations, including the recent extended islanded operation of South Australia.

Ben Jones will discuss how AEMO is planning for future climate impacts through the Electricity Sector Climate Information project, a collaboration between AEMO, CSIRO, and the Bureau of Meteorology.

There will also be time for Q&A following the presentations.
