Construction of the proposed interconnector and linking the energy grids of South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria would facilitate energy exchange, leading to a more effective balancing of supply and demand. This means increased energy security and enhanced network reliability, critical factors in continuing to support prosperous communities, regions and cities.
To progress Project EnergyConnect to construction stage, there are a number of important steps that need to be completed. These include:
Community and stakeholder engagement will be a critical component of all Project stages.
