Company profile

CS Energy is a Queensland-owned and based energy company that provides reliable and competitively priced electricity.

We generate and sell electricity in the National Electricity Market (NEM) where we have a trading portfolio of more than 3,500 megawatts.

Our purpose

Since 1997 CS Energy has provided reliable electricity to homes and businesses. As the new decade begins, we are adapting our business to thrive in the rapidly changing energy world.

Our purpose is Delivering energy today, powering your tomorrow captures the dual nature of what we aim to do – run a successful thermal generation business and evolve into a diversified energy company.

This evolution of our business is critical as Australia's energy landscape changes in response to renewable generation, technology innovation, and a rise in the active, involved energy customer.

Our portfolio

CS Energy operates the thermal Kogan Creek and Callide power stations, and we trade energy generated by the Gladstone Power Station, in excess of the requirements of the Boyne Island aluminium smelter. We also own the Kogan Creek Mine, which supplies black coal to the Kogan Creek Power Station.

We’re diversifying beyond our traditional business of thermal power generation into other parts of the energy value chain. 

We have a 50/50 joint venture with Alinta Energy to supply electricity to customers in South East Queensland, and we provide retail services to large commercial and industrial customers throughout Queensland.

We offer renewables to our customers through our partnerships with wind and solar facilities, and underpin them with energy from our thermal generation assets. We're also investigating opportunities in the emerging renewable hydrogen sector. 

A community member

We employ more than 550 people who live and work in the Queensland communities where we operate. At our power station sites our people are locals, and our sites contribute to regional economies.

An equal opportunity employer

Our people are the lifeblood of our business. They’re a diverse mix of talented, skilled and committed people, from accomplished leaders to new graduates. To keep our business on track for future success we’re building a culture that empowers our people to pursue new ways to think and work, and that attracts the best talent.
