UTILITY WIND AGREEMENT

At a meeting of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in Greece, a consortium of Australian electricity generators and the government's Energy Research and Development Corporation signed the IEA's Wind Energy Implementing Agreement for exchange of information on wind development. Although Australia has little operational experience in large wind projects, its Esperance wind diesel system has met with "considerable interest" from other countries seeking to marry wind with fuel oil based grids in remote regions, says Western Power's Michael Carr. This makes the IEA information exchange forum "more than just a one way street." he adds. The utility is one of the Australian consortium which signed the agreement. Other members include the Electricity Trust of South Australia, the Tasmanian Hydro-electric Commission, and Pacific Power.
