About this event

Australia’s electricity system is in a period of rapid transformation. Growing
renewable generation, the rise of distributed energy systems, and transformative
consumer technologies will all lead to a future grid that operates very differently to the
present. But how exactly will it be different? How do our operational practices need
to change and adapt? What do we need to do now, to ensure this transformation
happens smoothly? This presentation will illuminate the practical challenges that will
arise as our grid transforms, and the work underway to address those challenges.

Speaker:  Dr Jenny Riesz

Dr Jenny Riesz is a Principal at the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), the organisation
responsible for operating Australia’s major electricity grids. Prior to working at AEMO, Jenny
was a Research Associate at the University of New South Wales, conducting research on 100%
renewable power systems. She previously workedat ROAM Consulting, working with a wide range of electricity industry participants, modelling electricity systems and renewable energy. Her PhD was in physics, at the University of Queensland.
