AEMO has recently published its Q2 Quarterly Energy Dynamics, providing energy market participants, businesses, consumers, governments and the wider energy community with information on the market dynamics, trends and outcomes during Q2 2018 (1 April to 30 June 2018). This Quarterly Energy Dynamics report also incorporates analysis on the energy markets in Western Australia for the first time.

At this seminar, AEMO will discuss key findings from the Q2 report including drivers of declining wholesale electricity and gas prices across most regions, key changes in the electricity supply mix including hydro generation (the highest Q2 result on record), and higher wind and solar generation.  Electricity contract markets, gas markets and interventions will also be discussed.

The Melbourne Energy Institute is pleased to host AEMO’s Farhad Billimoria, Senior Markets Analyst, and Dr Jonathan Myrtle, Senior Energy Market Analysts, to discuss these and other key findings from the latest AEMO report.
