first_imgRising rooftop solar output pushes demand on Western Australia’s grid to all-time low FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:The West Australia grid has set a new record low for minimum demand as rooftop solar continues to increase its share of generation, and the government announces it is reshaping solar export tariffs to encourage storage, electric vehicles and west facing solar panels.The new low was set on Sunday, just after noon local time, when grid demand fell to 1059MW as rooftop solar provided 40 per cent of total generation. That’s below the previous record of 1135MW set in January this year, but the Australian Energy Market Operator expects that further lows will be set this spring and in following years.The record fell on the same weekend that new winter lows for minimum demand were set in Victoria and South Australia, according to AEMO, both also the result of increased generation from rooftop solar, and low overall demand.The lows for minimum demand levels are falling rapidly. “This was the fourth consecutive quarter in which a minimum quarterly demand record was set, of which two were all-time minimum demand records, highlighting the continuing impact of distributed PV on demand patterns and quantities in the WEM,” AEMO said in its latest Quarterly Energy Dynamics statement.This new record takes the number of consecutive quarters with a new minimum demand record to five, including three which are all time records.[Giles Parkinson]More: Rooftop solar: W.A. sets new record low for grid demand, two other states set winter lowslast_img read more

My team-mates were showing me a video and going ‘wow, wow, wow’ and I was asking myself, ‘How did you do that?’.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Sadio Mane turned 28 on Friday and his Liverpool teammates including manager Jurgen Klopp celebrated the 2019 African Player of the Year during their personalised training sessions at home. The United Kingdom has been under a three-week lockdown since March 23 as the government aims to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The spread of Covid-19 forced the indefinite suspension of the 2019-20 Premier League season until ‘it is safe and appropriate to resume play’. The restriction did not stop Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Dejan Lovren, Naby Keita, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and other Liverpool players from celebrating Mane’s birthday.
