Australia energy markets outlook 2015 - power

Australia energy markets outlook 2015 - power

Report summary

Power demand in Australia has contracted over the last four years, mainly driven by rising electricity prices, inducing demand response from customer to save energy and use more energy efficient appliances. We expect some recovery in the short term, driven by increased activities in the mining sector. New power capacity will be dominated by wind and solar, putting pressure to generation from coal, and gas to a lesser extent.

Due to their sensitivity to political events and the global economy, energy demand and trade remain extremely volatile. The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best.
