Why some Aussie states are facing electricity shortages [Video]

BLACKOUTSAustralia you might want to get your candles ready, because we’ve got an energy crisis on our hands. So far there haven’t been any big blackouts but energy suppliers have warned people in the Eastern states that they could be coming. You see, at the moment there’s a power shortage and as winter rolls in and people use more to stay warm the problem isn’t getting better. So, why is this happening? Well, part of the problem is coal power stations. A lot of them are getting old and some have been shut down for maintenance. Then there’s gas, at the moment there’s a global shortage because of the war in Ukraine and even though Australia has plenty of it, we’re sending a lot overseas and the price has gone through the roof. It has made power companies a bit reluctant to switch on the gas generators. All that means high electricity prices and the possibility of blackouts. The company that controls Australia’s energy supplies is helping to fund power stations to keep operating and they say, at least for now, the lights should stay on. But the government has asked households to conserve as much power as they can.BTS HIATUSBTS fans, I have some shocking news. The band is taking a break! The Korean superstars made the announcement in a video recorded at the house they first lived in as a band. They said they’ve been going through a bit of a rough patch and wanted to take some time to work on solo projects. You’ve got to admit it’s been a pretty good run. They’ve been to the UN, the white house and spent about a decade as one of the most successful groups on the planet.AFL HALL OF FAMESome legendary footy players are being honoured in the AFL hall of fame. One of them is Nicky Winmar who echoed a lot of people’s thoughts when he finally took his place in the AFL hall of fame saying it was “about time”.

He was joined by seven others including Brent Harvey, who played more AFL games than anyone in history and former Fremantle captain Matthew Pavlich, who kicked 700 goals. The late Port Adelaide star Russell Ebert was also promoted to Hall of Fame Legendary status.WIMBLEDONSerena Williams is going to Wimbledon.

Steffan Nero scored a world record 309 runs not out in the Australian Blind Cricket team’s match against New Zealand. He batted for 3 hours to become only the eighth Australian cricketer ever to score a triple century. After the match he said he felt pretty tired.ROBOT WAITERThis cafe in Canberra has hired a robot waiter. The owners said they were having trouble finding enough human workers, so they went for something a little less fleshy. The robot waiter can carry more than a human can and it’s never late to work. But they say it can’t do everything a human can.ROBOT FARMERGot some fruit that needs picking but just don’t have the time? Well don’t worry cause Berry here can do it for you!

Electricity Markets | Balancing Mechanism | Role Of Renewable Sources | Power System Operation [Video]

Electricity Markets | Balancing Mechanism | Role Of Renewable SourcesUnlike many other commodities or goods, massive storage of Electricity is in general not affordable. In particular, when we look at the things that an average human being consumes on a daily basis, e.g. food, clothes, oil, gas, medicines, etc., we observe that most of them have the common feature of being stored somewhere and available for human consumption whenever it is necessary.In contrast with these, Electric Energy has no realistic means to be stored and then delivered under consumer demand. This does not mean that technology to store Electrical Energy does not exist; battery systems have increased their performance and storage capacity in recent years, and in fact, they are a key element in several areas of the energy market. However, the amount of Electrical Energy that these type of systems can store is limited, and in general, electricity must be consumed as it is being produced.#ElectricityMarkets #BalancingMechanism #RoleOfRenewableSources
