1 - 1.5 Percent
46 percent capacity of the South Western Interconnected System (SWIS) is owned by Synergy. Private players in the mining industry also own the majority of off-grid generation capacity. 97 percent of Transmission & Distribution (T&D) is owned by Western Power, followed by Horizon Power, which owns 3 percent. Increase in prices of natural gas have has an impact on the generation cost, which is expected to ease as export restrictions come into practice. The SWIS contributes to 60 percent of the overall generation capacity in West Australia while the off-grid capacity contributes to 34 percent of overall generation.
Coal-based generation contributes to approximately 30 percent of the total SWIS generating capacity, however, gas-based generation is more prevalent in the off-grid and NWIS. The report also provides the industry structure and outlook on factors such as supply and demand, fuel mix, generation, trade & losses, followed by an overview of the scenario of renewable energy. It also provides Porter's five forces analysis on factors such as supplier power, buyer power, barriers to new entrants, the intensity of rivalry, and the threat of substitutes.
