EXPERIENCE: RenewEconomy article

It's always been a goal of mine to try to get some media interest in my research.  I've now unsuccessfully tried publishing in The Conversation three times, however today I've had great success with publishing a post in RenewEconomy.

RenewEconomy is the number one source for renewable energy news in Australia, and it turns out there are quite a lot of industry people reading it - as I know from the friends and colleagues who have been in touch today to let me know they enjoyed my post!

The article talks about my latest research article, which looked at network operators and why they might 'push back' on additional distributed generation, like solar energy.  One of the best aspects of publishing is seeing how people respond to the article, with people in the energy community agreeing to the research findings and wondering how we should overcome political influence restricting renewable energy adoption in the energy industry.
