our work

We focus on three core areas – Health and Safety; Engineering and Technical, and Systems Planning and Design.

In health and safety we are supporting the effective management of critical risks, health and wellbeing, and the minimisation of harm for people who are in, on, or near to, our sector assets.

In engineering and technical we are supporting the effective management and performance of assets and technology for optimum outcomes now and as we transition into a decarbonised future.

In systems planning and design we are future focused looking at emerging technologies and systems and what’s needed to transition and deliver a net-zero carbon economy. This includes people, systems and safe operation at all levels.

Alongside this, we continue to deliver value to the industry through our focus on advocacy with Government, growing industry knowledge and future capability, helping address challenges collectively by enabling standardisation, and profiling the great work our membership is doing to deliver safe, secure, reliable electricity to our communities.
