Mapping our network needs

In collaboration with other electricity networks in Australia and the Institute of Sustainable Futures at University of Technology Sydney, Ausgrid has helped to develop a free online tool that maps Australia’s electricity network.

The network opportunity maps help to inform the market about locations where investment in demand management and renewable energy may reduce the need to invest in poles and wires assets, supporting the uptake of local sustainable energy options and reduce costs for all consumers.

The maps are a valuable tool for identifing non-network solutions in conjunction with other processes such as the Regulatory Investment Test for Distributors (RIT-D).

The information provided is based on Ausgrid’s 2016 Distribution & Transmission Annual Planning Review (DTAPR).
