- Siemens Announces Technology Blueprint to Solve Australia’s Water and Energy issues by 2030
Apr 26, 2010 - Siemens Ltd.
Siemens recommends Australia invests AUD$60billion over the next 10 years in renewable and low CO2 generation technologies, and AUD$23billion over the next 10 years in water infrastructure technologies to make water available for the increasing population
- Underwater Cable an Alternative to Electrical Towers
Mar 16, 2010 - Matthew L. Wald - New York Times
Generating 20 percent of America’s electricity with wind, as recent studies proposed, would require building up to 22,000 miles of new high-voltage transmission lines. But the huge towers and unsightly tree-cutting that these projects require have provoked intense public opposition.
higher capacity and greater grid stability: Siemens to expand HVDC link in New
Nov 11, 2009 - Energy Central

Submission - Green Paper (pdf)
Sep 2008 - Stewart Taggart
Desertec-Australia and the Global Energy Network Institute encourage the government
to resist pleas by fossil fuel industries for exemptions to the strictures of
carbon pricing and carbon trading. Instead of making Australia's economy stronger,
exemptions will make Australia's economy weaker. Exemptions merely delay important
reforms and investments industry must make to adapt to a competitive new global
economy based on low emission energy sources.
In its "Roadmap to a Solar/Geothermal
Australian Economy By 2050," Desertec-Australia lays out a plan by which Australia
can develop its greatest comparative advantages in solar and geothermal and exploit
those to satisfy its own internal energy needs and those of Asia. The vision represents
an amalgam of Desertec-Australia's and GENI's views.
Farms Caught in a Catch-22 Situation
Mar 1, 2007 - Energy Central
The Press: Christchurch, New Zealand: Wind-farm proposals will not be able
to provide much-needed power to the rest of New Zealand unless Central Otago has
new transmission lines, Transpower says.

to deliver HVDC Light technology to Australia
Dec 22, 1998 - ABB
Project allows energy trading in Australia’s deregulated power market
Zurich, Switzerland - ABB, the international engineering and technology group,
has won an order to build a power link in Australia using High-Voltage Direct
Current (HVDC) technology. The 65-kilometer (41-mile) so called HVDC Light link
will connect the power grids of Queensland and New South Wales and allow power
to be traded for the first time between the two states. The order was placed by
HQI Australia Limited Partnership and EMMLINK Pty Ltd, which have formed a joint
venture to build, own and operate the link. ABB did not disclose the value of
the order. Construction of the link is to begin in June 1999 with operation scheduled
to start in January 2000.
