Countries are powered by a diverse range of energy sources, but in Australia electricity generation mainly has one source: fossil fuels. Coal, natural gas, and oil account for over 90% of the country's electricity. Hydro provides 7% with only 0.3% provided by wind and solar. Should Australia consider nuclear power? It is a complicated issue leaving many uncertain about its place in Australia's energy future.

Known as “The Lucky Country”, Australia is a combination of sun, endless beaches, rich natural life, many natural resources and, importantly, plenty of prosperity. Nowadays, Australia seems to be immune to any sort of financial crisis. The last time it entered a recession was when Gorbachev was the leader of the Soviet Union. But, how is this possible?

From the Film Australia Collection. Made by Film Australia 1982. Directed by Philip Robertson. Renewable Energy in Australia investigates how alternative forms of energy are harnessed using windmills, turbines, sun by solar energy systems and photovoltaic cells. These and other methods of utilising natural resources are demonstrated in this program. A broad spectrum from experimental work to commercial installations is covered in this general overview of renewable energy research in Australia. It looks at wind, water, solar and plant resources and for their potential use in tandem with traditional energy resources.

Today, we consume a truly vast amount of energy - with demand continuing to skyrocket at an alarming rate. We know that producing this energy has significant environmental impacts and emitting so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere could cause catastrophic climate change. In this film, three academics look at wind power, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and material efficiency as examples of how we can cut our C02 emissions. They suggest that we must act now in order to avoid the serious risks of man-made global warming, one of our greatest challenges in the 21st century.

The latest research from 2016 finds that a low-carbon electricity supply, based on current, economically operating technologies and proven resources is possible for Australia. We used spatial data for the whole of the Australian continent, at time increments of 1 hour to simulate suitable generator locations and new transmission networks. Nation-wide low-carbon electricity supply is possible at about 160 GW installed capacity, at cost of around 20 ¢/kWh, involving wind, concentrating solar, and PV utilities. The storage of renewable energy using hydro and biofuel plants is critical to plug gaps caused by occasional renewable low-resource period.

Port Augusta shows off its green energy credentials Renewables boom boosts Port Augusta Thirteen renewable energy projects are underway or under consideration — from wind farms and pumped hydro-electric power to solar with storage that can shift electricity made when the sun's shining to meet peak demand in the evening. "The one great resource we have here in Port Augusta and the upper Spencer Gulf is this wonderful natural resource called the sun," Mr Johnson said. "It's no different to having a massive uranium deposit, a massive gold deposit, a massive copper deposit." In a country drenched in sun, this natural resource is particularly abundant in the arid landscape around Port Augusta, and there are also plenty of flat expanses on which to build the facilities needed to exploit it. Framed by the Flinders Ranges, stage one of the Bungala solar farm stretches over 300 hectares of land owned by the Bungala Aboriginal Corporation about 10 kilometres north-east of town. Bungala uses a solar photovoltaic technology, with panels mounted on a tilting axis that can follow the sun's path from east to west, maximising output and efficiency.

It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

It’s been a miserable few weeks for Malcolm Turnbull’s government, stalled by myriad cock-ups and controversies. But the greatest challenge it faces continues to be Australia’s crisis over energy supply and cost. Who hasn’t been shocked by a recent electricity or gas bill? And who isn’t infuriated that power prices have risen so sharply? In a country as abundant with resources as ours it defies logic that there are now some Australians who can’t even pay for the electricity or gas to cook a simple meal. While federal – and state – politicians scramble to act, Elon Musk, the American billionaire with the brilliant mind, says he wants to help. In an exclusive interview with Liz Hayes, Musk says Australia’s energy emergency is easily fixable, and his construction of the world’s largest lithium ion battery at Jamestown in South Australia is proof.

The Polar Vortex of 2019 strained the Natural Gas lines of the US, while an extreme heatwave brought grid failures to Australia. 2 brutal extremes that strained and in some cases broke the infrastructure of 2 first world countries. US natural gas inventories upon their next data release are sure to show one of their biggest drops ever, and Australia may have to rethink its solar power affair, especially with the oncoming silver supply crunch. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Aviation & Travel Channel -- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGzkMpj0pFrP_wjGgFy8BVw PayPal -- paypal.me/Maxojir Patreon -- https://www.patreon.com/Skasis Shop -- https://www.redbubble.com/people/Maxojir/portfolio

LOOK TO AUSTRALIA FOR GOOD INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN NON-CONVENTIONAL ENERGY SOURCES LIKE COAL-BED METHANE, SAYS SCOTT DARLING OF J.P. MORGAN. SHOWS: HONG KONG, CHINA (SEPTEMBER 30, 2013) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) SCOTT DARLING, REGIONAL HEAD OF OIL & GAS RESEARCH, J.P. MORGAN 1. (QUESTION GRAPHIC) "Where do you see crude oil prices headed?" 2. SCOTT DARLING SAYING: "Well J.P. Morgan commodities team's formal view is that in the fourth quarter we are forecasting a brent price of about a hundred and seventeen. And then next year around a hundred and seventeen point five. Fundamentally while we've seen brent come off somewhat because of the geopolitical events around Syria unwinding, and we are into refinery maintenancies and where incremental demand tapers off temporarily, the fundamentals of the oil markets remain tight.

(QUESTION GRAPHIC) "How much impact do the Fed non-tapering and the U.S. budget issues have on crude oil price?" 4. SCOTT DARLING SAYING: "I think a lot of this is well known and it's been priced into oil markets. And I think if we start to see improving job data out of the U.S. and certainly more of a robust economic outlook, whether tapering happens soon or in the next few months, I think the oil market has sort of priced most of that in. And I think as we see more of supply side issues and possibly tightness or at least a demand recovery as we go into the northern hemisphere winter we would still expect oil prices to remain robust ." 5. (QUESTION GRAPHIC) "What is the future of shale gas and oil output outside the U.S.?" 6. SCOTT DARLING SAYING: "Well it's a very good question. I have spent the last ten days with J.P. Morgan Australian oil & gas analyst Ben Wilson. And a lot of the market focus is on China. I think we are very much in the early stage exploration in China. And obviously North America is well-established. A country we are actually quite positive on in terms of n...
