Project Overview

ElectraNet is exploring options that can facilitate South Australia’s energy transformation, while improving system security and helping lower electricity prices.

In November 2016, ElectraNet released a report for public consultation to explore options to facilitate South Australia’s energy transformation, while improving system security and helping to lower electricity prices. This report explored the technical and economic feasibility of a new interconnector as well as alternative non-network solution options.

During the consultation we received extensive feedback and input from electricity market participants and the wider community. Since that time, a number of external reviews have commenced, energy policies, including the South Australian Energy Plan and the National Energy Guarantee have been released, and work by other industry bodies has commenced that all have the potential to impact on the assessment of options under consideration.

We are undertaking additional modelling work, and will continue to assess the credible options in relation to the changing external environment and will release an update in due course.
