Discover How Australia Could Be Powered By 100% Renewables

Auses LogoIf you live in Adelaide and would like to hear about a 100% renewable powered future then come along and say hi next Wednesday At UniSA:
Australian Solar Energy Society SA Meeting

Towards electricity without fossil fuels: finding the best mix of renewables, demand management and storage

John Boland, Assoc. Professor in Environmental Mathematics, UniSA.
Weds 2nd May 2012 at 7.00pm
C3-16 Centenary Bld, City East Campus,
University of SA
(Corner of N.Terrace and Frome Rd)
This follows the AuSES SA branch AGM.
Australia’s use of fossil fuels is unsustainable. Thirty six percent of our fossil fuel consumption is used to generate electricity, and our demand for it is increasing. We need to design and transition to a future where electricity is generated primarily from renewable energy sources. This Icon Project’s research will develop the knowledge and tools required to design and optimise a system composed of a mix of generation technologies, including solar thermal, solar photovoltaic and wind. Variability of renewable energy sources will be overcome by using a combination of reserve capacity, spatially diverse generator locations, energy storage and management of demand to match supply.
A/Prof. Boland will present how this project will progress the issue of a sustainable energy supply into the future, both in a technological sense and also from the social perspective, to provide Australians with affordable, reliable, clean electricity in a context of environmental sustainability.
All welcome.
