Economic and technical modelling of the ACT electricity network: Base case report

Client: ACT Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate


This Base case Report (Stage 1 Report) contributes to the ACT Government’s decision-making whilst ensuring that emissions reduction policies and supporting programs enhance, not undermine, the socio-economic conditions enjoyed by Territorians.

This Report represents the results of economic and technical modelling of an ACT Government agreed base case, with assumptions based on business as usual (BAU), adjusted to reflect the current policy environment for a pathway to net zero (phase-out of fossil-fuel-gas by 2045) and expected trends.

The Report further sets out three realistic policy scenarios that, when modelled, will allow the ACT Government to select the transition pathway that will best contribute to a more resilient and sustainable energy system.
