The New South Wales (NSW) Government has granted Critical State Significant Infrastructure (CSSI) status to Project EnergyConnect (PEC).
The TransGrid Project EnergyConnect team were excited to visit Wentworth for the 134th Wentworth Show over the weekend of 24-25 August 2019.
Recently, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) released a report highlighting that additional power resources are needed to meet summer peaks. AEMO outlines that “…the acceleration of critical upgrades and construction of interconnectors and transmission to enable better use of existing and new supply resources…” is needed to improve reliability for customers.
ElectraNet and TransGrid recently joined a host of industry experts at the 2019 Clean Energy Summit, in Sydney, where a common theme for discussion was the need to build new transmission lines and upgrade existing infrastructure to support the delivery of renewable energy to the National Electricity Market (NEM).
ElectraNet has been advised that the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Energy (DoEE) has determined the South Australian component of Project EnergyConnect is to be a “Controlled Action”.
