On 3 November 2011, the Commission published a Decision Report (the report) which outlines its decision not to exercise the LRPP in 2011. The report describes the matters that the Commission considered in coming to this decision.
The Commission's considerations included the responses of the various jurisdictional planning bodies (JPBs) to high level transmission projects identified by AEMO. The Commission found that all of the JPBs are progressing projects which actively respond to AEMO's identified projects.
Having considered these matters, the Commission is satisfied that there is no clear gap in the planning process which would require the exercise of the LRPP in 2011.
The AEMC's publication of the report and supporting analysis from Intelligent Energy Systems represents the conclusion of the AEMC's investigation into the exercise of the LRPP for 2011.
