The Melbourne Energy Institute is pleased to host the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) as they present the findings of their latest Quarterly Energy Dynamics report.

The latest report, which will be published in early February, covers market dynamics, trends and outcomes during Q4 2018 (1 October to 31 December).

Each report extracts key trends based on observable data and provides the market with an independent and unbiased analysis of the energy market. An objective source of information is critical for decision making, planning and policy across industry participants, investors and government.

At this seminar, AEMO will discuss key findings of the Q4 report including: sustained high prices in the wholesale electricity and gas markets, a steady fall in output from gas-powered generation, and a 66% increase of large-scale variable renewable energy.

AEMO’s Farhad Billimoria, Senior Markets Analyst, and Dr Jonathan Myrtle, Senior Energy Market Analyst, will outline the Q4 report.


Farhad Billimoria is an energy professional with over thirteen years of global energy experience. He has covered electricity (renewable and conventional) and gas markets across Australia, New York and California. He is currently with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) responsible for the analysis and development of electricity and gas markets in Australia. Farhad has also had roles as an Energy and Infrastructure Specialist at the State of California (CalPERS) and as Vice President at AMP Capital in New York. Farhad has a Bachelors of Electrical Engineering and Law (Honours), and a Masters (Energy Systems) from the University of Melbourne with a focus on energy market modelling, forecasting and system design.

Dr Jonathan Myrtle is an energy and climate professional working at the Australian Energy Market Operator. Jonathan’s expertise includes: advising on the integration of climate and energy policy; quantifying the market impact of regulatory changes; and analysing trends and outcomes in Australia’s energy markets. In his current role, Jonathan is passionate about providing independent advice on the challenges and opportunities in Australia’s energy markets during the transition to a low emissions future.
