Innovation and Infrastructure

The energy grid is an integrated dynamic system, delivering electricity and gas to virtually every home and business in Australia.

Energy networks are leading the transformation of the grid into a platform for new products and services - rapidly connecting new technologies, while delivering safe, reliable and affordable supply across the community.  

This is underpinned by a range of standards and asset management expertise that assist networks in providing more than 16 million electricity and gas connections to customers across the country.

At the same time, energy networks are looking to the future – investing in research and development, partnering with leaders in innovation and technology and developing effective technical solutions to the challenges of integrating new technology that complements existing infrastructure.
