Our Energy System
Western Australia’s energy system is unique. We are blessed with world-class solar and wind resources, abundant gas supply, a wealth of battery metals and a highly-skilled workforce. Our grids are isolated from the rest of the country, presenting both challenges and opportunities as we move towards our Brighter Energy Future.
Our Energy Transition
The State Government, through Synergy and the Water Corporation, is investing in renewable energy and storage projects to secure our future energy needs.
The energy transformation is happening all around us. Driven by households and industry, and supported by government, the way we generate electricity, the way we consume electricity, and the cost of producing electricity is transforming.
Uniquely Western Australian
The Western Australian energy sector is undergoing unprecedented change. The State Government has developed, and is delivering, the Energy Transformation Strategy. It’s our plan of how to take charge of our energy future and provide cleaner, reliable, and more affordable electricity for all Western Australians.
