Renewable Energy - Powering Australia’s Future

Renewable energy sources like wind power will take centre stage in the energy transition. See how we’re giving power to our communities.

Five important factors to consider to get more power from wind

Australia is in its early stages of offshore wind development compared to other parts of the world, think Europe, China, and the US. We have over fifty potential offshore wind farms in their first phase of development. However, even the most advanced are several years away from approval, and we need to fully understand potential impacts. For example, we must think about how multiple projects could have cumulative adverse effects on our wildlife. It’s vital to assess the unique challenges of our fast-developing offshore wind industry.

The offshore wind lifecycle

With new legislation in place, investment in the Australian offshore wind sector is reaching new heights as developers see the opportunity for large scale power generation. From preliminary site assessments, feasibility licence applications, environmental impact assessments, feasibility license activities for construction, and commercial licence activities to operations and decommissioning—we can help power communities at every stage.
