error_outline Covid-19 Impact Update - Electricity Transmission in Australia

IBISWorld's analysts constantly monitor the industry impacts of current events in real-time – here is an update of how this industry is likely to be impacted as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic:

error_outline

A decline in thermal coal prices due to reduced demand from Chinese manufacturers is expected to reduce the domestic electricity service price, contributing to a fall in revenue for electricity generators.

error_outline

This trend is expected to improve the competitiveness of the Fossil Fuel Electricity Generation industry, in comparison with alternative electricity generators, and slow Australia's transition towards renewable electricity.

error_outline

Chinese manufacturers feature heavily in the supply chain of many companies operating in the Wind and Other Electricity Generation industry, and Solar Electricity Generation industry.

error_outline

Disruptions to these supply chains from the spread of the COVID-19 virus have the potential to reduce the ability of these companies to carry out planned capacity upgrades, or source parts necessary for maintenance.

Note: The content in this report is currently being updated to reflect the trends outlined above.
