Electricity Supply Emergency Sub Plan 

 
The Electricity Supply Emergency Sub Plan (pdf) provides the process for the emergency management of significant electricity supply disruptions in NSW by the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE), Emergency Services Organisations and Functional Areas.
 
A black system event, or any other electricity supply emergency, will have significant consequences for NSW infrastructure, businesses, essential services and households.
 
The failure of critical infrastructure (in particular those providing electricity supply) is a priority hazard that poses a significant risk to NSW as identified in the 2017 State Level Emergency Risk Assessment (SLERA). The SLERA supports the development and maintenance of this sub plan, and the need to prevent, prepare, respond and recover from a major disruption to the State’s electricity supply.
 
This Sub Plan is to be read in conjunction with the Energy and Utility Services Supporting Plan (EUSPLAN).
