This sector covers Electrical, Electronics, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Instrumentation and Control, Computer Systems, Data Communications, Information Technology, Lifts, Fire and security, Appliance, gaming, Rail, Renewable and sustainable energy, and a range of other related technical occupations from Certificate II to Advanced Diploma. Great career opportunities and pathways to new and advanced jobs with associated qualifications exist in the industry. It is an industry with ever changing technologies and significant career prospects into higher technician and para-professional jobs for those that enter it whether as an employee, choose to be in self-employment or seek to establish their own contracting business and employ others. The rate of technological change within the industry has never been greater and is expected to increase. By means of example, the use of 'smart' technology, such as home automation and the integration of systems, including voice and data is now commonplace in many sectors of the industry. It is an industry that continues to expand and develop. Its personnel must develop increasingly sophisticated technical skills and problem-solving abilities. Apprentices and skilled operatives are expected to build high levels of competency, flexibility and capabilities across a wide range of equipment, technologies, processes and procedures and be prepared for continuous development of their knowledge and skills throughout their working life. Skill shortages at trade and post-trade technical levels currently exist and are expected to worsen over the next five years.

The electricity supply energy industry in Australia comprises a number of interconnected sectors, such as, Transmission, Distribution and Rail (Transport). Transmission: electricity is transported from power generating stations (fossil fuels, renewable or other sustainable forms) through High Voltage (HV) transmission networks. The HV is then reduced to lower voltages at substations and distributed to a range of energy users. Distribution: electricity is distributed to industry, business and homes via 'bulk supply' substations. Rail: electricity is distributed to transport people and goods by various types of rail traction vehicles such as trains, trams and other light rail systems.

The main source of Australia's electricity generation is coal. Coal-fired plants also constitute a majority of generating capacity. Now, and in the future an increasing number of gas-fired power stations and other renewable energy sources will be used to generate more power nationally, including hydro, wind, solar, bio-fuels, and battery to ensure the industry has the capabilities to meet Australia's current and future energy requirements.

Natural gas provides an affordable, clean energy solution that will assist Australia in the transition to a carbon-constrained environment. Gas transmission and distribution refers to the supply of natural gas via transmission and distribution pipelines and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) via cylinders to domestic, commercial and industrial customers. Careers in this industry provide career pathway opportunities for formally recognised qualifications in Gas Supply Industry Operations from Certificate II to Diploma.
