The electricity industry is going through a complex transition from reliance on fossil fuels to lower carbon technologies. In Australia, the proportion of low carbon energy and storage is increasing, but those technologies are not yet at a point where they can function without support from fossil fuel generation.

The switch to greener energy can’t happen overnight. It needs to be planned and implemented carefully to balance energy reliability and affordability.

As a company that operates coal-fired power stations, it’s Stanwell’s job right now to keep providing reliable electricity at prices that are affordable, as the industry transitions to a lower carbon future.

We are able to ramp generation from our coal-fired power stations up and down, to let solar generation shine in the middle of the day, and still provide the electricity people need in the evenings.

While providing reliable and affordable energy for today, we are also exploring new generation and storage technologies that will help reduce emissions for tomorrow.
