Our response

  • Commitment made, through a Low Carbon Future Statement, to enabling the transition of the Queensland electricity industry and mitigating the potential risks of a changing climate – this includes proactively reducing our own controllable greenhouse gas emissions.


  • Yurika has continued to deliver high voltage connections for solar farms across Australia, and is now having success with Smart Connected Solar solutions for commercial properties, with the Mater Hospital in Townsville latest site to benefit.


  • Our connection teams supported an escalating number of rooftop solar system connections to our networks through 2019-20, with the strongest growth in the South East.


  • Our Future Grid Roadmap, which was put in place in 2018, is seeing us transform our networks into an intelligent state-wide grid, enabling our customers to leverage the many benefits of distributed energy resources and the digital transformation.


  • We’ve tested an innovative state estimation capability to provide an immediate forecast of the load on the local network at any point in time, critical to supporting solar connecting into our networks in the future.


  • Progressed a Micro-grid and Isolated Systems Test facility – the purpose-built facility in Cairns is transforming our capabilities so that our customers can leverage the many benefits of solar and other emerging technologies.


  • We’ve completed our first Stand-Alone Power System trial for an agricultural site as part of our plan to transform Fringe of Grid Supply, continuing engagement to influence regulations.


  • We have been instrumental in the development of a code of conduct for new energy technologies and services to better protect customers, as well as an important national standard on inverter connections.


  • Decarbonising Queensland’s remotest communities is underway, with the installation of an extra 404kW of solar capacity in Doomadgee this year.


  • Replaced more than 10 of our fleet’s passenger cars across the state with electric vehicles (EV), and we launched a new EV Home Charging Plan let EV owners take advantage of lower rates by charging when the network is not in peak use.


  • Yurika is rolling out Stage 2 of the Queensland Electric Super Highway. The string of public charging stations allow Queenslanders and tourists to travel in an EV with confidence from Coolangatta to Cairns or from Brisbane to Toowoomba.
