Upgrading the Queensland NSW Interconnector (QNI) will boost interstate transmission capacity and increase power flow on existing transmission lines. This will make it easier and more efficient to share power generation and resources amongst the National Energy Market.
The project has been identified as a priority by both the Australian Energy Market Operator in the 2018 Integrated System Plan and by the State Government in the NSW Transmission Infrastructure Strategy.
