The Melbourne Energy Institute is pleased to host Paul Austin from the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) as he presents findings from AEMO's latest Quarterly Energy Dynamics (QED) report. The QED report covers the period 01 July to 30 September 2021.

Q3 started with a continuation of the volatile energy prices experienced at the end of Q2, but these returned to lower levels by the end of the quarter. This was in contrast to the international energy price trend which climbed throughout the quarter, reaching record levels for coal and LNG. Renewable energy continued to reach new highs with record instantaneous penetration and record levels of negative prices.

The full report is available on the AEMO website.
