Neoen has been contributing to Australia’s energy transition with 100% renewable energy since 2012.
With a balanced portfolio of wind, solar and big battery projects, we are aiming to achieve 10 GW by 2030. We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.
This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice in Australia.
