Oliver Nunn presented at the AIMMS Asia Pacific optimisation conference, which was held in Sanya, China. The presentation worked through a case study on falling demand in the National Electricity Market and described the lessons that might be learned from Australia's experience. By way of background, China's annual electricity consumption is currently 5500 TWh, growing at 7 per cent per annum, and so the cost of overestimating demand could therefore be enormous. The presentation sparked a lively discussion.
