Australia's transmission networks are used to transport electricity at high-voltage from electricity generators to distribution networks and directly to large industrial users. Transmission networks are highly regulated geographic monopolies and the majority are state owned. The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) oversees most of the industry and sets revenue determinations for five-year periods for individual entities. Strong industry growth over the past five years, at an estimated compound annual rate of 3.7%, has been heavily influenced by the AER revenue determinations made from 2007-08 onwards.
Firms in this industry operate high-voltage electric power transmission systems and control the transmission of electricity from generating plants to distribution networks or large industrial users. 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.
