Distribution Annual Planning Report (DAPR)

Find out how we are planning the electricity network of the future in our Distribution Annual Planning Report (DAPR) (PDF 4.8 mb).

What this report covers

The DAPR covers a five year period from 2023-24 to 2027-28 and outlines our strategies and plans for regional Queensland.

In particular the DAPR and supporting information below include:

  • Planning for sub-transmission and distribution network growth
  • Asset repair and replacement planning
  • Planning for future demand on the network
  • Capacity and load forecasts by region
  • Current and future limitations on our sub-transmission and distribution networks
  • Possible solutions for network limitations.

How the information is presented

The full report can be downloaded as a PDF document (above). Our load forecasts, capacity data and detailed information on existing network limitations and proposed solutions are available to download as MS Excel (xlsx.) files below.

Our customer friendly Summary Distribution Annual Planning Report (PDF 1.9 mb) outlines the content in our full DAPR report with links to specific chapters.


Our DAPR is prepared and made available solely for information purposes and should not be taken as a recommendation in respect of any possible investment. This report was up-to-date when it was published, but details will change over time due to legislative, policy and other developments.
