Evoenergy Electricity Network 2019-24 five-year plan
Every five years, Evoenergy is required to prepare a detailed plan explaining how we will operate and maintain the electricity network to meet the future demand of our customers. This electricity five-year plan is submitted to the Australian Energy Regulator (the Regulator) for review.
We invite interested parties to make submissions on the AER’s draft decision (and our revised proposal once submitted) by 11 January 2019. Submissions should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our proposed plan for the 2019/20-2023/24 years was submitted to the Regulator and has been approved for compliance by the AER.
27 September 2018
The AER has now published its draft decision on the electricity distribution determination for Evoenergy, the ACT's electricity distribution network, for the period 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2024.
10 October 2018
The AER hosted a public forum (pre-determination conference) on its draft decision for Evoenergy in Canberra on 10 October 2018. Read the materials from the forum.
7 November 2018
Evoenergy held an ECRC meeting to discuss the AER draft decision and gain feedback on key elements of the draft decision.
Evoenergy’s 2019-24 regulatory proposal includes a program to undertake the installation of distribution substation monitoring devices to manage power quality and supply voltage compliance across Evoenergy’s low voltage network. This program is designed to better manage power quality as network requirements have changed largely driven by increasing penetration levels of embedded generation connections such solar panels providing electricity back into to the Evoenergy distribution network.

Evoenergy gas network
Evoenergy is currently operating under the ACT, Queanbeyan and Palerang gas access arrangement 2016-21.
On 26 May 2016, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) released its final decision on ActewAGL's access arrangement for the 2016-21 access arrangement period
Read a copy of the decision on the AER website. The outcomes of the Decision took effect from 1 July 2016.
Evoenergy consulted with the community over many months and in particular had a number of meetings and discussions with the ECRC. Input from our consumers contributed significantly to a number of areas within our submission.
Further information on our plan and associated community consultation activities can be found in the Five Year Plan for Gas.
Renewable gas projects in the ACT
Hydrogen - Evoenergy is working with the Australian National University on a research initiative around three elements: producing hydrogen from excess renewable energy: hydrogen usage as a storage medium: and a renewable energy source that can be used directly or injected into the ACT gas distribution network. Evoenergy is also actively working with the industry bodies and ACT Government on a number of trials to facilitate introduction of Hydrogen in gas network and path to convert ACT gas distribution network to meet ACT Government's net zero emission targets.
Biogas - Evoenergy is working on a business case for a pilot scheme to convert organic waste to biogas in an anaerobic digester, to inject the renewable gas into the ACT's gas distribution network. to capture CO2 for reuse and to generate soil enrichment fertiliser as part of the contribution to a closed cycle carbon neutral economy.
