South Australian Energy Transformation
ElectraNet is exploring options that can facilitate South Australia’s energy transformation, while improving system security and helping lower electricity prices.
On 7 November 2016, we commenced a Regulatory Investment Test – Transmission (RIT-T) process with the publication of a Project Specification Consultation Report (PSCR). The purpose of the RIT-T process is to explore the technical and economic feasibility of new interconnector and alternative non-network solution options. We have also published a Market Modelling Approach and Assumptions Report, and a Supplementary Information Paper to provide further information and opportunity for engagement.
The consultation period for these documents concluded on 27 February 2017.
There has been extensive feedback and input from electricity market participants, as well as from the wider community and other interested parties with a total of 35 submissions received. ElectraNet would like to acknowledge and thank all who have provided valuable input. We are currently working through these submissions and plan to provide a summary of feedback received during April 2017.
On 14 March 2017, the South Australian government released its Energy Plan. Aspects of this plan have the potential to significantly impact on the outcomes of the South Australian Energy Transformation RIT-T. For this reason, we are currently engaging with government and undertaking analysis to better understand the potential implications for our South Australian Energy Transformation RIT-T. Once this impact is understood, submissions to the PSCR can be fully assessed.
In the meantime, ElectraNet is engaging with non-network option proponents that provided consultation feedback to obtain additional technical and cost information about their proposals so that an initial assessment of the feasibility and likely benefits of non-network solution options can be progressed.
