Gas & Coal Watch

Gas & Coal Watch monitors the National Energy Market’s fossil fuel power plants for breakdowns, particularly over the summer when generating units are vulnerable.

Similar to the Australian Energy Market Operator’s definition, breakdowns are all unscheduled outages – either full unit trips where generation from a unit falls to zero or partial unit trips where generation drops significantly.

For more of our research into the growing unreliability of gas and coal, see Can’t stand the heat.

Gas & Coal Watch is currently being updated, recent trips will be added shortly.
