Our current projects

The projects we undertake strengthen our electricity network to ensure we can meet your needs now and into the future.

We review the electricity network every year to identify constraints and emerging issues. This strategic review is published as our Annual Planning Report, which highlights where development or changes in the network may be required to maintain system security, quality and reliability.

Regulatory investment test for distribution (RIT-D) projects

Name Description Final Project Assessment Report
Extending distribution network operational capability To ensure power system security and to continue to meet customer expectations around the quality and reliability of electricity supply, we’ve identified the need to enhance our distribution control system capability. We propose to do so via the implementation of a distribution management system.

Project Marinus - Second interconnector assessment

With support from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, we are assessing the viability of further interconnection between Tasmania and the rest of the National Energy Market. We released our Project Specification Consultation Report (PDF) and summary (PDF) for public consultation in July 2018 and submissions closed in October 2018. These submissions are available on the Project Marinus website. We also published an additional report, outside of the RIT-T process, in February 2019: the Initial Feasibility Report. This report, and submissions we received in response, are available on the Project Marinus website. In December 2019 we published the Project Assessment Draft Report (PDF) and summary (PDF). We also published a Business Case Assessment Report (PDF) and summary (PDF) which covers items beyond the scope of the RIT-T. Submissions to the Project Assessment Draft Report closed in April 2020.
The next stage is the Project Assessment Conclusions Report, which we will publish as soon as practicable after AEMO publishes the 2020 Integrated System Plan. We currently anticipate publishing the Project Assessment Conclusions Report in early 2021.
