    • AEMO Victorian Annual Planning report – The Victorian Annual Planning Report (VAPR) considers the adequacy of the Victorian transmission network to meet its reliability and security requirements and identifies development opportunities to address emerging network limitations.
    • TransGrid Transmission Annual Planning report (6.47 MB, pdf) – The Transmission Annual Planning Report (TAPR) provides advanced information to market participants and interested parties on NSW energy demand projections; emerging constraints in the NSW network, information on completed, committed and planned expansion, and proposed network developments over the next five years. This information allows the market to identify potential demand management solutions and allows TransGrid to apply the right network solutions.
    • AEMO Electricity Statement of Opportunities – The Electricity Statement of Opportunities (ESOO) provides technical and market data that informs the decision-making processes of market participants, new investors, and jurisdictional bodies as they assess opportunities in the NEM a 10-year outlook period.
    • Other Victorian RIT-T projects – AEMO conducts regulatory investment tests for transmission (RIT-T) on potential transmission network and non-network projects.
