Video: The Changing Electricity Grid

3 min

There has been unprecedented change across the National Electricity Market (NEM) over the past two decades with utility scale grid renewable generation increasing a staggering 850 fold in a twenty year period. 

The following animated video tells the story of this transformative change, and charts the exponential rise of utility scale solar generation in particular, which has seen a power system primarily reliant on coal, gas and hydro generation evolve into one that is driven by solar, wind and other renewable energy sources.

AEMO's role, as a world leading energy system planner and system operator, is to plan for and manage this change and ensure all Australians can enjoy affordable, secure and reliable energy now and into the future.

We hope you find the video useful and informative!
