Where are the lines to be built?


The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has identified several new lines that will need to be built over the next 20 years in order to meet our energy needs. 

The below infographic from AEMO details where the transmission lines will need to be, roughly. More detail on AEMO's plan for the future of our National Electricity Market can be found here

Some of these lines are already well into their planning stages, including:
