The Energy Networks Association (ENA) is the peak national body representing gas and electricity distribution businesses throughout Australia.

Gas and electricity distribution systems are also referred to as 'energy networks', and comprise lower pressure gas pipes and low, medium and high voltage electricity lines.

These networks transmit and distribute gas and electricity from energy transmission systems directly to the doorsteps of energy customers.

In Australia, more than $65 billion in assets and 12 million customer connections come together to form this network, which provides the final step in the safe and reliable delivery of gas and electricity to households, businesses and industry.

ENA represents twenty six companies involved in the supply and maintenance of electricity and gas networks, providing a single point of reference for major energy network issues across Australia.

Commencing operations in January 2004, ENA replaced the Australian Gas Association’s Network Operators Committee and the Electricity Supply Association of Australia’s Distribution Directorate, assuming the representational functions of these two associations on energy network issues.

ENA's absolute focus is on issues affecting energy networks as a whole, and on issues affecting gas and electricity distribution and transmission 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's Chairman is Terry Effeney, Chief Executive Officer, ENERGEX and its Chief Executive is Malcolm Roberts.
