Victoria’s transition to renewable energy requires the timely construction of new transmission lines to enable upcoming offshore wind farms to connect to the grid. Delays to transmission means delays to these projects, which keeps Victoria’s greenhouse gas emissions high, contributing to greater climate impacts.

Our feedback on VicGrid’s Options Assessment Method to Offshore Wind Transmission in Gippsland and Portland falls into three categories outlined in this post.
