Under the unconvincing title of ‘renewable energy’ the government tries to push through a corridor of transmission towers and in the process leave country Victorians ‘hung out to dry’. "The Ironwork Grid is a thing of the Past and Has No Value in Our Future" is a heartfelt message by Janie Garner.
AusNet Services state that only 245 landholders will now be impacted by the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project (WVTNP). The reality is that the WVTNP will impact thousands of Victorians if this project proceeds in its current form.
The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project (WVTNP) today released the Landholder Guide: Land access, easements and compensation. "I've added a few thoughts of my own for consideration. Have a read then download the guide".
The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project hosted a series of community webinars throughout September where environmental and technical specialists presented their findings. You can find recording of these webinars here.
Decline of Victoria’s biodiversity is set to accelerate as native habitats are fragmented by the recently announced proposed final corridor of the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project (WVTNP).
Amplitude consultants were engaged by Moorabool Shire Council to investigate an alternative HVDC option utilising underground cable to the AEMO preferred Western Victoria Transmission Network Project (WVTNP) Option C2.
To ensure a continued reliable supply of energy in Southern Germany, transmission system operators 50Hertz and TenneT are planning to build the SuedOstLink electricity highway. The project represents the most powerful HVDC system in VSC technology worldwide.
We must insist on a comprehensive review of all Renewable Energy transmission projects. Overhead transmission infrastructure is not in the public interest, it is an antiquated solution to energy transmission that results in unacceptable direct impacts and cumulative disbenefits.
