Renewable Projects Quarterly Report (Q2 2023)

Large-scale energy storage projects led renewable energy investment in the second quarter of 2023 (ending 30 June), with 1497 MW (capacity) / 3802 MWh (storage) reaching financial commitment*.

This was largely thanks to the Waratah Super Battery in NSW, boasting 850 MW / 1680 MWh of capacity and storage alone.

This quarterly result was 2480 MWh more than the rolling quarterly average for generation over the last 12 months, which increased quarter-on-quarter to 1321.5 MWh (+8.23 per cent)

CEC feedback on Draft Queensland Electricity and Connection manual

The CEC recognises the importance of a robust and resilient network. We have supported work towards enabling dynamic operating envelopes for Consumer Energy Resource (CER), with particular focus on dynamic export limits that unlock generation capacity and reward consumers who own CER for making their energy more flexible and supporting the wider system. The CEC welcomes the approach (if not the mechanism) Energy Queensland and their subsidiaries (EQ) have taken to this end, resulting in larger potential photovoltaic (PV) solar system sizes for consumers.

Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) Consultation Paper: Introducing a new class of LEI for renewables

We welcome the proposal of more specific training for inspectors operating in the renewable energy sector and a new class of LEI that represents this competency. Improved consistency of safe renewable energy (RE) systems increases consumer satisfaction and trust in the industry which is imperative to a smooth transition.

CEC Submission South Australia's H2 and RE Bill

The CEC submitted its formal submission as part of the consultation process.

Our key points are that:

  • We welcome the introduction of a regulatory framework for hydrogen production, providing certainty and confidence for the emerging green hydrogen sector.
  • We are also supportive of a framework to access pastoral lease land, as recommended in the SA Productivity Commission’s Renewable Energy Competitiveness Report. The proposed regulatory framework is largely appropriate.
  • However, the proposed licence scheme should not apply to freehold land. Such a scheme is unnecessary for this land tenure type, it will lengthen rather than streamline the project development process, and it risks creating a significant disincentive to new clean energy investment in the state.

Review into Consumer Energy Resources Technical Standards (EMO0045)

The CEC is pleased that the Commission is undertaking a review of the technical standards for consumer energy resources (CER) and outlining recommendations (for the review of industry stakeholders) that aim at improving compliance of CER devices. Our response to the draft report is based on feedback from our members and are aimed at ensuring the proposed recommendations mitigate any unintended and negative consequences.
