Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap

The Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap is the NSW Government’s plan to transform our electricity system into one that is cheap, clean and reliable.

What is the Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap?

The Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap is the NSW Government’s plan to transform our electricity system into one that is cheap, clean and reliable. 

The Roadmap is enabled by the Electricity Infrastructure Investment Act 2020, which passed into law with cross-party support in December 2020.

The Roadmap coordinates investment in transmission, generation, storage and firming infrastructure as ageing coal-fired generation plants retire. The Roadmap includes actions that will work together to deliver ‘whole-of system’ benefits.

The Case Management service makes it easy to invest in NSW by providing a central point of contact for businesses investing in large-scale energy infrastructure that improves the reliability of the NSW electricity system.
