Resource-rich Australia grapples with coal power shortage - Nikkei Asia

Quick Summary

That has reduced the supply of fuel to the Eraring power station, which generates a quarter of the electricity used by the state of New South Wales, home to Sydney.

AEMO partly lifted the suspension of the spot market Thursday and plans a full reopening if supply looks likely to remain stable.

This could equate to more than 10% of overall generating capacity, based on government materials showing that coal accounted for more than half of power generation in the fiscal year through June 2020.
