Flood Risk Management Plan

Energex's Flood Risk Management Plan outlines how we manage our assets that minimises the associated risk and customer supply reliability during times of major and moderate flood events. 

The Plan is reviewed annually to address changing risk profiles and the impacts of inundation on Energex's electricity network.

Guidelines for planning stronger, more resilient electrical infrastructure

These guidelines intend to:

  • Inform Queenslanders about the electricity supply network and the impacts that flooding and cyclones can have on electricity supply.
  • Inform Queenslanders about the impact that the 2010/2011 events had on the electrical infrastructure network.
  • Identify the lessons learnt from the recent natural disasters.
  • Provide key considerations for electricity distribution, land use planning, emergency planning and management, building and design including the home.
