Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne Reactive Support – Project Specification Consultation Report
22 Nov 2011 | filename: 0170-0048.pdf
RIT-T Termination Notice
As a result of the revised forecast in electricity use as detailed in AEMO’s 2012 National Electricity Forecast Report (NEFR), the need for additional reactive power support in Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne, as shown in the Project specification Consultation Report (PSCR) above, has been deferred.
The PSCR was prepared using the maximum demand forecast published in the 2011 Electricity Statement Of Opportunity (ESOO), indicating a need for additional reactive power support in Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne by summer 2014-15. AEMO has decided not to proceed to complete this RIT-T at this moment.
AEMO will continue to assess the need for additional reactive power support as part of the Victorian annual planning report (VAPR) to ensure that any need identified can be met timely.
