At Stanwell, we provide the spark for a bright future. 

As Queensland transforms to 80 per cent renewable energy by 2035, Stanwell is building our state’s clean energy future. We  invest in  reliable energy today, and renewable energy for tomorrow – creating opportunities for our communities.

With the state’s largest pipeline of renewable generation and storage in development, we already have an extensive supply of clean energy underway. As our renewable energy production increases to meet demand, we will gradually repurpose our existing power stations into clean energy hubs, replacing coal-fired energy with clean, renewable energy in line with the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan. 

And while this transformation is undertaken, our coal-fired Tarong and Stanwell power stations will continue to generate reliable electricity to keep downward pressure on prices. 

At its heart, the energy transformation is about people working together to find solutions that bring the greatest mutual benefit. At Stanwell it is underpinned by our commitment to create a bright future for our state and our people.  

We’re working closely with our people, delivering our commitments under the Queensland Energy Workers’ Charter to help them realise opportunities from the energy transformation.

Building more renewable energy to power Queensland’s future. 

Between now and 2028, we will invest $9 billion in wind, solar and batteries enabling us to connect 9 to 10 GW of Queensland’s 22 GW renewable energy target.   By 2035, our renewable energy assets will power up to 40% of Queensland’s current energy demand with clean energy. 

Stanwell: Supporting the Energy & Jobs Plan 

Repurposing our coal-fired power stations to become clean energy hubs 

In the coming years, as our renewable energy production increases, Tarong power stations and Stanwell Power Station will continue to generate electricity to keep downward pressure on prices.  By 2035 our pipeline of solar, wind and hydrogen energy assets and battery storage will reduce Queensland’s reliance on coal-fired energy and enable us to transition our coal plants into clean energy hubs.

Driving Queensland’s hydrogen industry  

The renewable hydrogen industry plays a critical role in the State’s future economy and we’re helping to drive that industry in Central Queensland. With an international consortium of partners we are proposing to develop a hub where renewable hydrogen is produced and exported and where industries that consume hydrogen are located.
