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.
German cabinet opts for underground power cabling. The decision by ministers to opt for the main north-south trunk of 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) of DC cable follows bitter resistance to overhead cabling.
Large-scale solar development in regional New South Wales has gained an unexpected new opponent, with the state chapter of Country Women’s Association of Australia voting to call on governments to prevent solar farms from being developed in prime agricultural areas.
