Transmission Planning

The changing energy landscape

Energy transition is accelerating, creating new challenges and opportunities for the transmission network. TransGrid's network plays a pivotal role in this changing energy landscape. 

Planning and development of the network is undertaken on a cyclical and a needs basis to ensure that transmission service delivery to our customers is cost-effective, environmentally responsible, responsive to changing requirements and meets the jurisdictional, contractual and National Electricity Rule (NER) obligations.

Transmission Annual Planning Report

We also prepare a Transmission Annual Planning Report (TAPR) which provides advanced information to market participants and interested parties on NSW energy demand projections; emerging constraints in the NSW network, information on completed, committed and planned expansion, and proposed network developments over the next five years. This information allows the market to identify potential demand management solutions and allows us to apply the right network solutions.
