Our climate policy

Human-made climate change is real. But we can do something about it. We want Australia to transition to a zero-carbon economy. Quickly.

Squadron Energy is focused on enabling more rapid decarbonisation. We develop renewable generation and firming such as batteries, peaking power stations and Australia’s first energy terminal. These firming assets will complement renewable power generation when solar or wind power generation isn’t available or sufficient.

We will invest in energy transition projects such as dual fuel (gas and green hydrogen) power generation that has a pathway to 100 per cent green hydrogen.

Energy transition projects are needed to provide a reliable and secure energy system in the short term, without creating a longer-term dependence on fossil fuels.
