Tassie to unleash clean energy tidal wave on NEM

The implications of Hydro Tasmania’s proposed wind farm on King Island go well beyond its 600MW. That's because it could underwrite another interconnector between Victorian and Tasmania, allowing further clean energy exports from other projects.

Hydro Tasmania’s King Island wind project represents a lot more than just an extra 600MW of wind, if it manages to proceed. Instead it could really be seen as a 1000MW wind project combined with an option on a lot more highly flexible hydro generation from Tasmania. Generation that will become increasingly valuable as we increase the penetration of variable wind and solar, and close down coal.
