Moving to a renewable future

Australia’s energy mix is rapidly changing. As demand grows for renewable sources of energy, we are diversifying our business to meet the needs of our customers and the market.

We are transitioning our business to a lower-emission economy by offering renewables to our large commercial and industrial customers by partnering with renewable energy facilities.

The Queensland Government has a strong commitment to increase the state’s use of renewable energy and has set a target of 50 per cent renewables by 2030.

As a Queensland-owned energy business, we play an important role in supporting this renewable energy target.

CS Energy has added renewable energy to our portfolio through agreements with the Columboola Solar Farm, Warwick Solar Farm and Kennedy Energy Park.

Through these partnerships, we can offer our customers green products and support them with energy from our thermal generation assets, ensuring they have lower carbon, reliable and competitively-priced power.

The Queensland Government has set out its strategy for the coming years in its Powering Queensland Plan, to help navigate the short- and long-term challenges facing Australia’s energy market.

Improving electricity affordability, contributing to the achievement of Queensland’s 50 per cent renewable energy target by 2030, supporting secure and reliable electricity generation, and creating new investment and jobs in regional Queensland is among its responsibilities.

Queenslanders had the lowest wholesale electricity prices in the NEM from FY2017 to FY2020.
