Lack of network planning threatens Australia's renewable electricity future, expert warns
The expanding footprint of renewables represents a radical change from traditional large-scale, centralised generation, necessitating more national planning for sending power where it is needed.
Australian National University's Energy Change Institute director Kenneth Baldwin said the remote locations of present and future renewable facilities meant Australia's 20th century power grid required reform.
"This is a seismic shift in the way electricity is generated and distributed," he said.
"In the future it will look much more like the internet of energy, in the same way that the internet developed into multiple nodes and many different interconnecting pathways.
"All these features of the future energy landscape are located in areas that are not necessarily where the demand is, so you have to arrange the electricity network to access the best resources and the best storage."
