TRUenergy is one of Australia’s largest generators and energy retailers.

About TRUenergy
As one of Australia’s largest energy companies, TRUenergy owns and operates a multibillion dollar portfolio of energy generation and storage facilities including coal, gas and wind assets. We service the energy needs of over 2.8 million households and businesses across New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Australian Capital Territory and Queensland.

Our investments in low emission technology
As an investor, generator and retailer in Australia, we recognise the importance of building a sustainable business. We were the first energy business in Australia to develop a Climate Change Strategy with the goal of reducing our emissions by 60% by 2050 with interim goals along the way.

As a major coal miner and generator of electricity in the Latrobe Valley through the operation of the Yallourn power station and mine, we acknowledge the need to develop cleaner forms of coal fired generation and coal derived products. As part of this strategy, we have been working with a number of partners to identify more efficient and cleaner uses of brown coal, including gasification, coal to oil, coal upgrading and various forms of carbon capture.

TRUenergy is taking an active interest in industry and R&D issues, including membership of Brown Coal Innovation Australia, representation on CCS & brown coal forums and participation in R&D projects with Monash University and CSIRO.
