Guidelines to Best Planning Practices

Understanding External Costs of Overhead Electricity Transmission

External costs should be considered in transmission planning to rebalance the true benefits, this will lead to greater market efficiency and environmental sustainability. The evaluation of the external costs could be of great help during the cost-benefit analysis, allowing the negative impacts to be considered in the process to identify the optimal transmission development path.

Best Practice Approach for Protection of Wedge-tailed Eagles in Electricity Transmission Infrastructure Development

The transition to renewable energy generation in the name of climate change must not degrade the environment and biodiversity we are striving to protect. It is critical that electricity network planners seriously consider Wedge-tailed Eagle nesting, territory and habitat requirements.

Engineering Climate Resilience

The electricity system is witnessing increasing pressure from climate change. What is Australia doing about it? It is clear that policy makers need to fulfil a critical role in building resilient electricity systems by adopting effective policy measures that can prevent a potential 'market failure'

Planning Scheme

Planning schemes are made up of maps and ordinance. The ordinance are the policies and written clauses and the maps depict where the zones and overlays apply within the planning scheme area.
