Transmission Planning

Transmission will be central to the energy transformation

TransGrid is leading the transition to a clean energy future by supporting and ensuring a smooth transition to renewables. 

Timely investment in new infrastructure is essential for the power system’s successful transformation to the energy system of the future.

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.
