Electricity emergency

Gas emergency

Every five years, Evoenergy is required to propose to the Australian Energy Regulator how much we plan to spend operating, maintaining and investing in our gas network in the ACT, Queanbeyan and Bungendore, and how these costs should be recovered from gas network customers.

Our current five-year plan for 2016–21 expires on 30 June 2021, and we submitted a new plan for the 2021–26 period at the end of June 2020, ahead of the commencement of the next regulatory period on 1 July 2021. The Australian Energy Regulator provided its draft decision on our plan in November 2020, largely accepting how we had proposed to operate and maintain the gas network in the next five years. We have now submitted our revised plan, which largely accepts the Australian Energy Regulator’s draft decision for our gas network for the 2021–26 access arrangement period but provides a revised demand forecast to reflect updated and new information, as well as developments in the ACT Government’s climate change policy settings. 

We encourage consumers to give the Australian Energy Regulator feedback on its draft decision, and whether it best serves their long-term interests.

Below is more information about the next five year period including key dates and how you can get involved in our consultation program. Information about the 2016-21 gas plan is available on the Australian Energy Regulator’s website.

 

Gas five year plan for 2021–26

In the next five year period, from 2021–26, we’re looking to reduce network charges, develop a roadmap for the gas network to achieve the ACT Government’s 2045 net zero greenhouse emissions target, and continue to prioritise safety and maintain reliability.

Reduce network charges

Our plan proposes to reduce network charges while maintaining quality, safety, reliability and security of supply.

A net zero emissions gas network

Over the period of the plan we will continue to develop a roadmap to meet the ACT Government’s policy to achieve a net zero emissions network by 2045. Learn more.

Prioritise safety

The safety of the community and our staff remains our number one priority and something we will not compromise. Our plan will ensure we can continue to prioritise safety.

Maintain reliability

We will continue to look for efficiencies in how we manage the network without impacting the high level of reliability of supply that our customers need and have come to expect from us.

Get involved

We want to ensure the changes we make in the way we’re managing the gas network today are in the long term interests of the network users—you.
