Inquiry into the current circumstances, and the future need and potential for dispatchable energy generation and storage capability in Australia

| 10 May 2021

ASMC’s submission to the Standing Committee on the Environment and Trade focuses on:

  • ASMC’s understanding of Australia’s (the National Energy Market’s (NEM’s)) future dispatchable capacity needs;
  • The Australian sugar industry’s ability to triple its supply of zero to low emission semidispatchable power from current, but highly under-utilised bagasse feedstock; and
  • Barriers to fully utilising this latent bagasse supply for power generation
