The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has published a project proposal consultation report as part of a joint Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) with TransGrid, to assess the technical and economic viability of expanding transmission interconnector capacity between New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria. The proposed expansion seeks to address identified transmission network limitations and manage future energy supply reliability, ensuring the power system continues to deliver least-cost, secure and reliable energy to consumers now, and into the future.
Submissions on the Project Specification Consultation Report closed on 13 March 2020. To view submissions, visit stakeholder consultation on AEMO's project page.
