The Yallourn Power Plant closure is a symptom of a larger problem - and it could be harming your business
In response to the growing capability and capacity of clean energy options, Yallourn Power Station is anticipating an early closure, to be replaced by one of the country’s largest Big Battery storage systems. While it sounds great in summary - a move towards a cleaner, efficient country - the closure of one of Victoria’s oldest brown coal power generating plants brings with it a wide range of issues that have the makings of another energy bill disaster for businesses and residents alike.
Future Proofing your business
Australia has one of the most expensive energy markets in the world, with no likelihood to change any time soon. As more coal power stations close, and no political compass for what comes after, we can anticipate seeing the cost of energy continue to rise, as demand increases thanks to population growth and technology development.
So what can you do to future proof your business, and protect yourself from this oncoming concern?
