AEMO exposes truth on wind

A new report from AEMO provides a wealth of data on how high penetration of wind is impacting on SA's electricity market. Not all of it is good news for wind but intermittency is proving to be far less of a problem than some imagine.

The Australian Energy Market Operator has released a report today providing a variety of interesting data illustrating characteristics of wind power in South Australia. Data covered includes:

-- Monthly wind farm output from 2006 to June 2012;

-- Contribution of wind farm capacity to peak demand;

-- The relationship between wind farm output and electricity prices with a particular focus on negative price events;
