The Electricity Transmission industry operates the high-voltage electricity network, linking electricity generators to the distributors that operate the low-voltage electricity supply system. The industry operates 59,548 circuit kilometres of high-voltage electricity transmission lines; all but 1,062 circuit kilometres are overhead lines. The industry is expected to transmit 241,696 gigawatt hours of electricity in 2012-13.
The industry is expected to generate revenue of $3.42 billion in 2012-13, up from $2.62 billion in 2007-08. This growth, amounting to 5.5% per year, largely reflects determinations on industry revenue made by regulators.
Firms in this industry operate high-voltage electric power transmission systems and control the transmission of electricity from generating plants to distribution centres or other electric utilities. The transmission system includes lines and transformer stations.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
