About the Course

This course will provide a clear understanding of the fundamental structure and workings of the Australian electricity industry and the National Electricity Market (NEM).
Although this course will examine the stationary energy sector as a “whole”, it will focus more on electricity than gas.
Our expert instructor will describe the structure of the Australian electricity and gas industries, design of the NEM, current electricity industry issues including renewable energy and storage integration and the CoAG energy market reform agenda.
Participants will also learn about the technical concepts and language used within the electricity industry and within the emerging renewable energy and storage and “smart grid” technology spheres. This will help them bridge the cultural gap between the existing industry and the emerging technologies.
For those who need to become experts in the energy industry, this course will provide a fundamental background.

Who Will Benefit

Managers, executives and staff from the electricity, gas, renewable energy and storage industries, regulatory bodies and government, banks, brokers, lawyers, consultants, industry advisors, major energy users and other industry professionals seeking more knowledge about the current electricity industry and future trends
