    Report blows cold on Vic wind power plans

    June 24, 2022 - By Jacob Greber


      Victoria's Energy Minister Lily D'Ambrosio has claimed that the state will have enough offshore wind projects online by 2032 to supply power to 1.2 million homes, with the potential to support 13 gigawatts of capacity by 2050. However, data from the Energy Security Board indicate overseas operators of capacity mechanisms often impose very low reliability ratings on wind and solar generators, and D'Ambrosio's stated wind shore capacity could be 'derated' to as low as 6.2 per cent. In comparison, ratings for coal and gas generators range from between 79 per cent and 100 per cent.
