Marinus Link is a proposed electricity and telecommunications interconnector between Tasmania and Victoria. It will enable the flow of electricity in both directions between the two states, delivering low-cost, reliable and clean energy for customers in the National Electricity Market (NEM). It will enable excess energy generated on the mainland to be stored in Tasmania’s hydro storage, and made available for use when NEM demand outstrips supply.
Tasmania’s renewable energy and storage resources will also be available for use throughout the NEM as a result of Marinus Link. Marinus Link will put downward pressure on electricity prices. It will provide more stable, abundant, low-cost and clean energy.
