Electricity Network Transformation Roadmap


Electricity Network Transformation Roadmap

A partnership between the ENA and CSIRO

Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, and the peak national body representing gas distribution and electricity transmission and distribution businesses in Australia, the Energy Networks Association (ENA) have partnered to develop an Electricity Network Transformation Roadmap (the Roadmap).

What's New

Release of the Customer Engagement Handbook

The Customer Engagement Handbook has been designed to provide practical guidance to energy network businesses in fostering transparent dialogue with their customers. You can download the Handbook here

In developing the Handbook, the Energy Networks Association conducted formal engagement workshops and ongoing conversations with CSIRO social science experts, customer engagement practitioners from energy network businesses, and customer advocacy and other stakeholder groups.

The Handbook includes references to further resources and case studies of engagement activities drawn from Australian energy network businesses. Potential opportunities to progress engagement practices across the industry have also been identified and circulated in a complementary document, Sharing Customer Engagement Practice. This document will be used in ongoing discussions to advance improved engagement and measurement practices with a range of industry stakeholders

Upcoming Workshops

The following events are planned over the course of 2016. These workshops will explore the Roadmap content as it matures and we are seeking the constructive engagement of stakeholders in this process.  Final dates/locations will be provided as they are finalised. 

Review of Draft Roadmap Content (mid August TBC)

This one-day event will present a draft Roadmap content and quantitative modelling for review and discussion in a workshop environment. This is an important step in gaining feedback from external stakeholders to help refine the Roadmap content.

Future Digital Market Platforms (mid August TBC)

Building on the workshop of the 7/8th July, this workshop will further explore maturing perspectives on the digital market platform options that may be plausible in the Australian context, together with relevant implementation pathways.

Advanced Roadmap Content review (mid-late Sep TBC)

As the project moves into fine-tuning the Roadmap content, this workshop will examine and ‘stress-test’ the next tranche of Roadmap content and quantitative modelling. 

The Roadmap project has a clear delivery date, however, should it prove necessary by mutual agreement, supplementary Roadmap workshops may be conducted to ensure the quality of the final reports.
