Leeson Groups Technical Director Hieu Nguyen will be presenting at All Energy Australia on Thursday the 4th of October. Hieu will present on how the electrical power system in Australia is experiencing a rapid change with a large amount of renewable generating plants connecting to the grid to replace the ageing coal power plants and reduce the industry CO2 emission. Both the Finkel review the recently published AEMO Integrated System Plan agree that an addition of several gigawatts of renewable generating plants mainly solar, wind and storage are needed to maintain the security of Australia's energy future. This presentation will talk about the grid connection process for large scale solar farms in Australia from feasibility study and preliminary enquiry stage to plant commissioning and commercial operation, and challenges project developers/investors/owners may face at each stage.
