Combined Output of Renewables meets 50% of Electricity Demand of Australia’s Grid

Australia’s main grid, known as the National Electricity Market, is using an online tool called OpenNEM that monitors the grid in real-time using data from the Australian Energy Market Operator. At 11:50 am on Wednesday, November 6th, OpenNEM showed that renewable electricity was providing more than 50 % of the electricity demand of five states including Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and South Australia. Although it was a short time interval it has a long-lasting effect on people’s way of thinking that does not believe in relying on renewable sources of electricity.

According to Reneweconomy, Rooftop solar provided nearly half the renewables output, or 23.7%, followed by wind (15.7 %), large-scale solar (8.8 %) and hydro just 1.9 %. At the same time, black coal-generated electricity held still the biggest share and provided  35.7%. In addition, 13.5% of the electricity demand was fed with brown coal.
