Transmission network service provider performance report 2007-08

Network performance report
Release date: 
30 June 2010


The report is prepared each year using information provided by the transmission network service providers (TNSPs) under the National Electricity Rules. The report focuses on the revenue and expenditure performance of the networks.  Information is presented on the TNSPs’ profitability and investment outcomes, comparing actual expenditure with those forecast in the original revenue cap decisions. 

Electricity regulatory reports generally detail the financial and service standards performance of relevant TNSPs within the National Electricity Market over a financial year. 

Regulatory reports are a useful tool and provide significant benefits, such as:

  •  facilitating informed public input into future decisions by the AER
  •  allowing public scrutiny of annual TNSP performance against revenue caps
  •  providing greater transparency of the regulatory process.
The report provides revenue, profit, expenditure and service standards information on each of the transmission businesses for the 2007/08 reporting year. The businesses covered are Directlink, ElectraNet, EnergyAustralia, Murraylink, Powerlink, SP AusNet, Transend, TransGrid and VENCorp.
