The Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action is delivering a program of work to revive the State Electricity Commission to invest in new renewable generation or storage capacity in Victoria.
The State Electricity Commission will invest an initial $1 billion towards delivering 4.5 gigawatts of power through new build renewable energy generation and storage projects. This will increase the amount of renewable energy in the system, drive down emissions and power bills and create thousands of jobs.
IAG was engaged to support the delivery of State Electricity Commission Pioneer Investment in renewable and energy storage projects through strategic guidance on the delivery of key policies intended to ensure renewable energy facilities are delivered in a manner than is considered ‘Best Practice’ within the context of the broader renewables and energy industry.
Our team provided expert advice, guidance and support to the State Electricity Commission in making decisions about the selection of its Pioneer Investment through the assessment of investment proposals ensuring the approaches of government policy implementation were credible, feasible, and where possible met best practice.
IAG worked with the State Electricity Commission and investment proponents to ensure community benefits and an appropriate approach to community engagement were considered early so projects were set up for successfully delivery with a positive social licence. IAG assisted SECIO to establish, prioritise and procure multiple projects.
