Company descriptionThe Energy Networks Association (ENA) is the peak national body representing gas and electricity distribution businesses throughout Australia.
Energy networks are the lower pressure gas pipes and lower voltage electricity lines that distribute gas and electricity from energy transmission systems directly to the doorsteps of energy customers.
With more than $35 billion in assets and 12 million customer connections, Australia’s energy networks provide the final step in the safe and reliable delivery of gas and electricity to households, businesses and industries.
ENA commenced operations in January 2004. It has replaced the Australian Gas Association’s Network Operators Committee and the Electricity Supply Association of Australia’s Distribution Directorate, and assumed the representational functions of these two associations on energy network issues.
Eighteen electricity and gas network companies are full members of ENA, providing governments, policy-makers and the community with a single point of reference for major energy network issues in Australia. Electricity transmission companies are also associate members.
Products and servicesENA’s absolute focus is on issues affecting energy networks as a whole, and on issues affecting gas and electricity distribution networks separately.
These issues include the national and state government policy and regulatory environments under which energy networks must operate, and key technical issues such as network safety and security of supply, reliability and power quality, the management of peak energy demand and energy efficiency.
ENA is located in Canberra’s parliamentary precinct. Its Chairman is George Maltabarow, Managing Director, EnergyAustralia and its Chief Executive is Andrew Blyth
