Just a typical day in S Australias electricity supply/demand “yoyo” game... Some days the wind doesn't blow.

If you look really closely, you can see the contribution from the worlds biggest grid battery into (one of) the world smallest demand markets. The tiny blue and orange noise pattern along the very bottom of the chart.

Also remarkable how Natural gas (pipeline) drops from 1250 MW to less than 500 MW within 2 hours. Some days they just run out of pipeline?

There are a string of battery charge and no discharge events during that time, just when the Net Interchange Import is building up. Apparently the imported power was cheap. Maybe there was lots of wind there.

The Hornsdale battery typically charges or discharges at 35 MW in timeslots measured in seconds. You can see it is continuously active within that frame. It does stabilize the net and evens out the cost. On a 1800 MW per day scale it looks insignificant, but so are its costs compared to the other players on the grid.

Demand dropped to half across the entire populated area of the continent during the cool of the night so the pricing from the coal plants in neighboring Victoria became dominant driving it down below the gas peakers.

Funny how the people with the most descendants care the least about what they are leaving them.

I like this one, but Al Jazeera decline the use of 'geodesic dome', instead calling them geometric pods or metal igloos. Ideology or ignorance?

They're made from aluminum diamond plate. I've never seen so much in one place before.

Frank, those of us in rural areas with more than three children are very conscious of what our children will face. That is why we insist on teaching the value management life style. See "How to Survive Without a Salary" by Charles Long. Farming and trucking are not safe occupations so having a family member killed in an accident is all too common. The goal is a healthy sustainable population that avoids conspicuous consumption.

If that were true you would have stopped at two.

Actually, 2.1. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=population+replacement+rate

If the available occupations are hazardous why would you not round up?

Thank goodness all those [hazardous] truck driver jobs are going away, eh?
