Managing electricity demand

Keeping Queensland’s electricity network reliable and sustainable is a balancing act. Excessive demand on the electricity network impacts efficiency, reliability and costs.  On the other hand, the increasing uptake of solar PV can cause incidents of energy oversupply.

Energex works with industry and Queensland communities to ensure a stable electricity supply. Smart management of the network means fewer power outages, less need for new infrastructure and, ultimately, lower electricity bills.
