  • I can definitely recommend a website that really helped me with my essay. I found out it was due the day before I had to submit it. Went into full-on panic mode. Worst experience of my senior year by far. It’s called ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐. The quality of the writing is passable but the completion rate is super quick. You get to pick your own writer to do your stuff and that’s also a big bonus.

  5. 5. New regulation for a new energy system5 / Metropolitan generation in Sydney and Melbourne Spencer Street Power Station (1892 – 1982) Central Melbourne, Melbourne White Bay Power Station (1917 – 1983) Rozelle, Sydney
  6. 6. New regulation for a new energy system6 / Transmission technology enabled coalfield generation Hazelwood Power Station (1964 – 2017) Latrobe Valley, Vic Munmorah Power Station (1967 – 2012) Central Coast, NSW Bayswater (commissioned 1985 – 86) Hunter Region, NSW Image: Macquarie Generation Loy Yang B (commissioned 1996) Traralgon, Vic Image: Marcus Wong Wongm
  7. 7. New regulation for a new energy system7 / A trajectory towards 100% renewable generation is feasible, and the technical challenges associated with this transformation can be met in a way that is affordable for consumers. Connection of large-scale renewable generation in areas with abundant renewable resources could be enabled by extension of the transmission network to those areas. The transition to large-scale renewable sources of energy will be enabled by transmission
  8. 8. New regulation for a new energy system8 / Renewable energy zones to support the national electricity system
  9. 9. New regulation for a new energy system9 / A pathway towards generation with a low levelised cost of energy (LCOE) that meets emissions targets. Development of transmission networks to integrate large-scale renewable energy whilst ensuring power system stability Mechanisms that provide ancillary services at the lowest possible cost Renewables Transmission as a platform Security and stability Consumer focus Market design appropriate to the future energy mix, that promotes genuine competition and protects consumers when there is ineffective competition Key elements Transition to renewables at lowest cost
