Australian LNG industry fumes at hint of gas export, price controls
Australia is one of the largest LNG exporters in the world, but the bulk of its resources are off its northwestern coast, far from the population centres of the eastern central and southeastern coasts where energy demand is greatest. With the international gas market in disarray and prices going through the roof, a plan by the country’s government to make Australian gas producers deliver gas to the domestic market at an affordable price has set off something of a bruhaha within the industry.
Grid digitalisation holds the key to a faster transition
Running a reliable grid, largely based on renewable electricity is not a pipe dream, but it is only possible with a smart, digital and decentralised bi-directional grid.Schneider Electric’s Frédéric Godemel believes the short-term energy crisis, and the longer term race to net zero can both be solved through implementing these grids of the future today.
A softer approach to tackling the energy crisis
The ongoing energy crisis is affecting transmission system operators (TSOs) across Europe and particularly Germany, which faces the challenge of transmitting power from North to South. Junior Isles hears how grid operators can at least avoid a potential blackout this winter with the help of software to boost grid capacity.
Giving biogas a boost
Biogas has an important role to play in reducing fossil fuel dependence but more needs to be done to ramp-up production of this renewable gas. Vertus Energy’s Benjamin Howard shares his view on the potential of biogas and describes a technology that can improve production efficiency.
