Renewable Energy vision

2 Replies 17250 Views

I am part of a Sydney based MBA team, we are undertaking a project on renewable energies from the perspective of strategic frameworks.


We are trying to prove that energy security is essential to the future of Australia. We are preparing a report based on the following statement; "Energy markets are moving towards a renewable energy strategy to provide energy security for the future".


We would love to hear your thoughts about the future of the renewable energy sector.

Hi Jayden,


I am in the same group as Josh at uni and was hoping that you might be able to assist by answering a few more questions:


  • How many renewable energy assets do you own in total?
  • What year did AGL acquire its first renewable energy asset?
  • What percentage of your overall revenue is attributed to renewable energy?  In 2020 do you think this percentage will have increased significantly?
  • Who is AGL's key competitor in the renewable energy space currently and in the future?

I appreciate your assistance!


Kind regards,

Absolutely agree that we need renewable energy to be made front and centre. Good to hear that AGL have a Renewables Fund for developing wind farms and solar fields. But alarming that at the same time they are proposing to drill in the environmentally sensitive Westernport Bay. There are important wetlands, mango swamps, and key breeding grounds for some of our wonderful marine life here, and the chemically polluted waste which will pour into the Bay will change this forever. Slicks of oil, drilling, and the constant seismic booms will affect the hearing of our larger mammals, which will endanger their existence. Even the constant movement in and our of the proposed port will disturb important breeding and feeding grounds. How does this fit with their purported green image? Many in the community see this as a backward step by AGL, based purely on financial gain, without regard for our environment.
