    This working paper aims to improve our understanding of wind integration issues for the Australian National Electricity Market (NEM) in the South Australian context by assessing the interaction of wind generation, electricity demand and regional spot prices over the most recent year of market data. The analysis is intended to provide insights into the potential implications of a greater expansion of installed wind generation in South Australia and across the other regions of the NEM under the recently legislated expanded Renewable Energy Target. With the current installed wind generation in South Australia, our results suggest that while electricity demand currently has the greatest influence on spot prices, fluctuating South Australian wind generation levels have a significant secondary influence.
