Podcast: Bushfires impact on grid

3 min

In our latest Energy Live podcast, we take a look at the impacts of bushfires on the power system.

Australia has approximately 40,000 kilometres of transmission lines and energy infrastructure across the eastern seaboard. The recent devastation caused by the bushfires had severe impacts on people, property and communities but also on the power system.

Today's podcast guest is John Deere, Principal Engineer from our Operations Planning team,  and in this episode he talks us through some of those impacts on the grid and how AEMO mitigates risk to the power supply.
