Large-scale solar projects, such as those we helped deliver, are an important part of Australia's sustainable energy supply.
AGL proudly operates some of the largest wind farms in the Southern Hemisphere. They are an important source of renewable energy and play a vital role in our generation portfolio.
Our thermal energy assets generate electricity using heat that comes from gas or coal. AGL Loy Yang and AGL Macquarie are fueled by coal, while AGL Torrens uses gas.
AGL Hydro plays a small but important role in our energy landscape. While its generation capacity is small compared to other assets, it plays an important role in maintaining continuity of supply.
Natural gas from coal seams supplies over 30% of eastern Australia’s gas needs and is a safe and reliable energy source. AGL is progressively decommissioning and rehabilitating wells at the Camden Gas Project in NSW, ceasing production in 2023.
Our two gas storage facilities, help maintain a continuous supply of gas during peak periods.
To help increase gas supply for domestic customers, we’re looking into transporting Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from interstate and overseas. One site in Victoria, Crib Point, has been identified for a feasibility study.
