Adelaide – Melbourne hot days pressure power prices

Thanks to Siliggy for the heads up. AEMO has both South Australia and Victoria with “Scheduled Demand” prices for todays afternoon peak plus $10,000 MWh. Something to watch as the afternoon turns to evening – surely those sky-high prices will moderate as bids come in. OpenNem for SA and Vic shows clearly that yesterdays heat upped demand and wind power fades away exactly when needed across the peak. As a curiosity Tasmania was exporting through BassLink at max during the peak but at very low uneconomic prices from 1730hrs to 2000hrs. We need a Royal Commission into the Electricity Grid to force information and explanations public.
