Abstract

The risks of climate change were thrown into sharp relief this recent summer for Australia’s most southern state, Tasmania. A reduction in hydro-electric generation capacity due to dwindling dam storages was compounded by a failure of the main cable connecting Tasmania to the national grid. As power shortages loomed, the state’s major industrials were ramping down production to avoid brown outs.
