Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

I'm hoping that in the not too distant future we have an over-supply of wind/solar combined with storage that means we can rely on it for 100% of generation along with having excess to sell interstate.

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

The South Australian government has received 50 proposals for energy storage options. Hoping pumped hydro wins big amongst the grant money... And just out of interest, it is entirely possible to power South Australia by wind this afternoon Tuesday Feb 12 but AMEO (Australian Energy Market Operator) ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A park'n'ride in North Adelaide ? Absolutely stupid idea.....park'n'rides belong 20 kms out in suburbia, otherwise you just get the same problems as if the park'n'ride doesn't exist, 20 kms of traffic funneling into one small area looking for a car park.....or looking to get into a singular car park...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

I gotta say I am liking the idea of an indigenous art gallery more and more (especially now that Darwin proposal seems to be going nowhere) There are plenty of other contemporary art galleries around the country (or on the drawing boards) so 'something different" is called for if Adelaide wants to a...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Unfortunately all those projects won't get up and a lot of energy generation is now going east ( and if the interconnector to NSW is significantly upgraded then even more electricity will be destined for export)

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

There is one important proposal missing from that list - the Highbury Quarry Pumped Hydro project.

I hope this is still happening (400 mw for 4 hours, very useful in heatwaves, and a large amount of "disposable" energy)

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Its sort of pointless rebuilding it unless it is in the exact same location as the original, and that is not going to happen thanks to the Port Adelaide Police Station and Law Courts. Best scenario..in 20-30 years the land is now so valuable that a new Port Dock station is rebuilt with apartments ov...
