Strategy and planning

2018 Transmission Planning Report

Transpower regularly publishes a Transmission Planning Report (TPR) which details the grid asset capability over the next 15 years.

We have evolved our TPR this year to include a Grid Enhancement Approach. These new sections, in each regional chapter, provide more detail on active and potential investment investigations, linking the current investigation status to our planning processes and portfolio funding.

Auckland Strategy Final Report

Auckland is changing. Rapidly. Roads, housing, technology, industry and electricity.

Our Auckland Strategy looks specifically at the importance of electricity transmission into and across Auckland today and into the future.

Our capacity for meeting Auckland’s future electricity needs is very good, and we can meet all demand and growth projections for the next 30 years.

We also need to keep the grid in great shape and we have an extensive maintenance programme on our existing 220kV lines over the next 30 years. We are planning for this work now.
