Integrated System Plan (ISP)
The Integrated System Plan (ISP) is a whole-of-system plan that provides an integrated roadmap for the efficient development of the National Electricity Market (NEM) over the next 20 years and beyond.
Its primary objective is to optimise value to end consumers by designing the lowest cost, secure and reliable energy system capable of meeting any emissions trajectory determined by policy makers at an acceptable level of risk. It fully utilises the opportunities provided from existing technologies and anticipated innovations in Distributed Energy Resources (DER), large-scale generation, networks and coupled sectors such as gas and transport. AEMO published the inaugural Integrated System Plan (ISP) for the National Electricity Market (NEM) in 2018, and it will be updated every two years.
