The Australian energy industry is in transition, moving towards a lower emission and renewable energy future.
This is a significant technological, economic and social change.
As the biggest generator in the country, the largest private developer of renewable energy projects, and one of Australia’s largest energy retailers – AGL is uniquely placed to drive this change.
In 2015 we released our revised Greenhouse Gas Policy. The policy set parameters for our strategy, and included an orderly exit of our coal-fired power stations. It was a clear statement of our commitment to the decarbonisation of our generation portfolio.
In 2016 we committed to a detailed strategic review of our approach to rehabilitation, recognising the increasing need to inform our stakeholders on our approach to managing the risks and opportunities associated with rehabilitation and the energy transition.
In 2017 we released Rehabilitation: AGL’s approach to rehabilitation of power generation infrastructure. The report summarises the outcomes of the strategic review of rehabilitation requirements, and our understanding of the challenges associated with repowering, repurposing and rehabilitating large power generation sites.
Closure timeline The report also outlines our commitment to evidence based, best practice site transition. It serves as a foundation for engagement with our people, communities, investors and policy makers, and provides a methodology to identify options for our generation sites post closure.
