Sustainable Energy Now's WA power grid simulation software
Posted on 04 May 2009
Sustainable Energy Now (SEN) is a WA based non-profit organisation promoting the potential of existing renewable energy technologies. Chris Dickinson, Secretary of SEN, argues, “There is a huge need for a specific, costed plan from the renewable side of the debate.”
The role of renewable energy in decarbonising the Australian economy is critical. Australia is well placed for this transition because of its large supply of renewable energy resources. Despite this, political debate often stresses the so-called ‘limitation of existing renewable energies’ whilst heralding measures such as CCS.
Come along to hear Chris describe the work of SEN and the development of a WA power grid software simulation that demonstrates how the grid has the potential to operate entirely from sustainable sources.
Beyond Zero Emissions Inc. is a not-for-profit research and education organisation working to design and implement a zero emissions economy for Australia. Its goal is to transform Australia from a 19th century fossil fuel based, emissions intensive economy to a 21st-century renewable-energy-powered clean-tech economy. Read more
