 +**Seminar:** Extreme weather and volatile pricing in the electricity market
 +
 +**Speaker: Mr. Paul McArdle**, CEO GLOBAL-ROAM
 +
 +**Abstract:** What happened in QLD over a volatile summer & why? Are there implications for the future? \\
 +During a hot and volatile summer in the Queensland region of the NEM, Global-roam fielded a number of questions from clients (and others) who asked Global-roam to help them understand what was happening, and why – specifically with respect to spot prices, but also with respect to other variables. During summer, Global-roam prepared some isolated pieces of preliminary analysis, which were delivered to clients directly, or published more broadly on WattClarity® here: http://www.wattclarity.com.au/2012/11/summer-2012-13-in-thenem/ However the questions kept coming.
 +
 +This report has been prepared, with the benefit of hindsight and time to analyse (and with the assistance of experienced market analysts), to expand on the explanations given – particularly with respect to the diverse number of factors combining to deliver this volatility.
 +
 +**Biography:** Paul McArdle is the CEO of GLOBAL-ROAM – a company that helps clients to reduce their stress and cost, and/or increase their revenues, by making the energy market more understandable. Today, Paul will speak about the recent market volatility in QLD over the period summer 2012-13 through till the end of Q1. The analysis presented forms part of a deeper analysis performed by GLOBAL-ROAM as part of a detailed report to be released shortly.
