Our Distribution Annual Planning Reports

This consultation is for stakeholders interested in the detail of our plans for electricity networks across Queensland.

You may be a proponent for demand-side or non-network solutions or a market participant in some other way, a developer or a planner in one of our local councils, or simply interested in the electricity industry.

We see our roles as energising Queensland communities, so would really appreciate your feedback to help make our Distribution Annual Planning Reports as useful as possible to you.

The Reports

An Energex Distribution Annual Planning Report, for South-East Queensland, and an Ergon Energy Network Distribution Annual Planning Report, for regional Queensland, is published annually in December.

The two Reports look ahead, discussing:

  • The challenges, risks and the future demand on the network
  • Our network planning and forecasting methodologies
  • Emerging network limitations and the solutions proposed
  • Our demand management activities
  • Our approach to asset life-cycle maintenance
  • Details about reliability and quality of supply
  • Other information on metering and our technology investment.

Recent improvements

Over recent years we’ve made a number of improvements based on feedback received. We have:

  • improved the documents themselves, aligning Ergon Energy’s and Energex’s documents (this process will continue)
  • introduced interactive network limitation maps showing where our networks state-wide are forecast to become constrained
  • we also have a map showing where demand management incentive are available
  • made the data around our forecasts, and network limitations and the proposed solutions more accessible through downloadable Excel files
  • provided more detail on planned substation solutions and asset replacement projects
  • provided more detail on how we’re enabling solar energy and the management of voltage levels on our network.

For the documents, maps and the data, take a look at these pages:

Ergon Energy Network Distribution Annual Planning Report

These reports, and the Regulatory Investment Test – Distribution (RIT-D) process for specific local supply challenges and other engagement activities, and our interactive maps, are all aimed at supporting greater collaboration throughout the energy supply system.

How can we improve our efforts here?
