Right energy mix

We believe in the right energy mix to provide reliable and affordable energy for all Australians. 

When it is used to replace coal in electricity generation, gas plays a key role in reducing emissions globally. It has half the emissions of coal and is more flexible and able to support sudden changes in wind and solar power.

By 2020 we expect to have 25% of our generation coming from solar and wind and this will only continue to grow over time. We believe the electricity sector can achieve net zero emissions by 2050 or earlier. 

As a first step towards that, we were the first Australian company to set an emissions reduction target endorsed by the global Science Based Targets Initiative.
