    more As part of a program to explore technological options for the transition to a renewable energy future we develop scenarios for 100 renewable generation to meet current electricity demand in the five Australian states and one territory spanned by the National Electricity Market NEM The preliminary simulations reported here cover a scenario for the year 2010 where electricity demand is met by a renewable generation mix based on concentrating solar thermal CST power with thermal storage wind photovoltaics PV existing hydro and peaking gas turbine plants running on biofuels Generation from these sources in 2010 is simulated using meteorological records for that year A 100 renewable mix for the NEM is found to be technically feasible for the year 2010 meeting the NEM reliability standard with only six hours in the year where demand is unmet However this is achieved with a high capacity 24 GW of peaking gas turbine plants to cover periods of insufficient power from other sources typically winter evenings Increasing the solar multiple of CST plants is helpful in allowing more energy to be captured and stored during winter marginally reducing the required capacity of gas turbines Overall meeting evening peak periods in the winter months remains the principle challenge Download pdf Quick view Share Facebook Twitter Edit Delete Move section Simulations of Scenarios with 100 Renewable Electricity in the Australian National Electricity Market more by Mark Diesendorf As part of a program to explore technological options for the transition to a renewable energy future we develop scenarios for 100 renewable generation to meet current electricity demand in the five Australian states and one territory more As part of a program to explore technological options for the transition to a renewable energy future we develop scenarios for 100 renewable generation to meet current electricity demand

    therefore puts forward a different analytical framework based on the theoretical concepts of core periphery and capital stock This was designed to increase our understanding of marginalisation by taking into account unequal ownership of entitlement to and control over ecological technological organisational and human assets Through an action research methodology this analytical framework was informed by a participatory programme that established safe drinking water supplies in several poor and arsenic affected villages The learning experience was then fed back into the programme This pragmatic approach was also systemic i e it emphasised the community level which was framed within the context of external influences various other programmes and national policies This resulted in a clarification of the problem in terms of 1 lack of ownership of community land resources drinking water institutions and technical knowledge 2 restricted access to non governmental services and benefits from public or collective assets and 3 exclusion from decision making in new water sector developments It was concluded that alternative strategies need to focus on vesting ownership entitlement and control in marginalised communities The steps to achieve this will have far reaching ramifications for how organisations policymakers and funding agencies perceive and plan development projects The analytical and methodological approach of this thesis is relevant to other cases of marginalisation in different socio economic contexts More Info PhD University of New South Wales 2009 Research Interests Arsenic Contamination in Ground Water Arsenic Bangladesh Drinking Water Poverty and 1 more Poverty and Marginalization edit Download Share Facebook Twitter Edit Delete Move section Backcasting for sustainability in engineering education the case of Delft University of Technology more by Crelis Rammelt Publisher Elsevier Publication Date Jan 1 2006 Publication Name Journal of Cleaner Download pdf Quick view Share Facebook Twitter Edit Delete Move section Arsenic Mitigation and Social
