Our strategy

The Australian energy mix is changing rapidly. Three key factors are driving this significant change – renewable generation, technology innovation, and a rise in the active, involved energy customer.

As a major electricity provider it’s critical that CS Energy maintains and invests in our existing assets so they perform at their best to power homes and businesses. But we must also leverage new technology, business models and partnerships to create a long term future for our business.
