NSW doesn't have any debt.

 

What we really need is an East West line.

must have used all the staples on the  Light Rail  - cant get home if you live in Castle Hill but you can catch a train from Randwick Racecourse past the old footy stadium ruins all the way to Star City Casino and Burrangadoo on Melbourne Cup Day - woopeddeedoo

So Melbourne really is the world's most liveable city!
If yes, then Sydney must be crap!
No! I did not say I hate Sydney or Sydnysiders.

For PZ.

Looks like another giant stride for pumped hydro!
Tasmania is aiming high with it’s "Battery for the nation".
I have never heard about it, but it sounds good. Plus 2500MW of instant capacity how good!
Lower energy prices? Maybe, but only after everything is paid for.

ROB HARRIS

VICTORIA’S future energy supplies will be bolstered through a massive new investment in Tasmania’s Battery of the Nation project.

The federal government has pledged to underwrite the Apple Isle’s ambitious project to harness and dispatch more renewable energy to the mainland .

Three pumped-hydro sites earmarked for development have a combined storage capacity of up to 40GWh — equivalent to more than 300 of South Australia’s Tesla batteries — and Battery of the Nation could supply up to 2500MW of new, dispatchable power.

The Tasmanian government , through Hydro Tasmania , has committed up to $30 million to take the first phase of the project to investment stage by 2021. It will hope to harness the second interconnector between Tasmania and the mainland.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the project would help cut power prices and put an end to blackouts.

Nice find Peter :)

 

We have around 20 stations either planned or u.c.

 

Pumped hydro to triple electricity storage

The 20 pumped hydro projects in the works will triple the nation's electricity storage capacity, research from the Australian National University suggests.

 

There are enough pumped hydro projects being planned across Australia to triple the nation's electricity storage capacity, research has revealed.

 

There are 20 projects in five states at various stages, with some in initial assessment phases while others are being constructed.

 

Australian National University researcher Jamie Pittock says this will dramatically change the electricity grid for a number of reasons.

 

Not only will it see more renewables added to the system, Professor Pittock says, but the projects will increase the resilience of the grid as the pumped hydro facilities are peppered around eastern Australia.

 

"The scale of the investment in pumped storage is a game-changer," he told AAP on Monday.

"It means we can continue to add in solar and wind and retire coal fired power stations, and keep the lights on."

Prof Pittock says other research has shown these 20 projects could be enough to support the whole National Electricity Market.

 

Pumped-hydro schemes have two water reservoirs at different heights joined by a pipe.

 

When power prices spike, water is released from the upper reservoir to flow through turbines and make electricity, getting up to full capacity within a minute.

The water can be pumped back up when costs fall again.

 

The federal government has recently announced $1.38 billion to support an expansion of the Snowy Hydro scheme in NSW.

Tasmania is also spending $30 million on feasibility studies to investigate three pumped hydro storage sites as part of the Battery of the Nation project.

 

Prof Pittock says Snowy 2.0 is so large it could run the eastern grid for a day, whereas other projects would be able to store enough for peak power needs.

 

Household battery storage complements pumped hydro but has a higher environmental impact, he added.

Can't wait for it all to be completed.

Hi PZ.
I would rather see the money spent on real hydro first, then the backup.
The real hydro has enormous over capacity at night, so use it alongside the real stuff.
Pumped hydro should compliment real hydro not the other way around.
Who is going to gaurantee price spikes and drops?

Too right Mello Y...
And he had the seat until the brilliant strategy by Labor got it's own man Turncoat into the very seat.

Malcolm Turnbull never  held the seat of Warringah Peter, and nor did Malcolm Turnbull ever represent the ALP

 

I am obviously talking about the recent election, not ancient history - where rather than giving Tony Habbott somewhere to sit, the clever folk of Warringah Shire gave him a massive 19% kick up the arse to give him something to really sit on

 

hahaha

 

and just like his mate Johnny Howard, they both received the humiliating farewell any clever electorate can give to any former Prime Minister who lost the faith of the people  - a swift kick right up their entitled arses and right out of their seats

 

Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd NEVER lost their seats, they had the grace to retire ... only losers like Howard and Abbott hang on to the taxpayer handouts long long long after their use by date

so much for that planned challenge to ScoMo 10 months down the track

 

 you could say green power cleaned up a lot of the garbage on the northern beaches

 

#### happens eh Tones

Hi Mello ...
You know I was referring to the PMs seat.
I know Turncoat was not MP for Labor. I was referring to Labor's brilliant work in getting a labor man into the Liberal PMship
Stunning achievement!
Score now?
Has not changed.
Still Libs 1 Labs 0. Own goal makes it worse.
