Spark Renewables is one of Australia’s leading developers and long-term owners of renewable energy generation assets.
Starting in 2018 with a single 120 MWdc solar farm, the potential generation capacity of our development portfolio has grown rapidly to span solar, wind and battery storage projects.
Our goal is to develop and build projects leading the renewable energy transition in Australia. We work with industry innovators and tertiary institutions to provide sustainable, socially acceptable solutions for generation of electricity.
Our purpose starts with sustainability. It is the reason we exist and fuels our drive to play our part in building Australia’s renewable energy future.
We're committed to doing what's right.
We care about the land we build on, working closely with landowners, local communities and all levels of government to develop solutions that help decarbonise the energy sector, whilst also driving positive social and environmental outcomes at a local level.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we operate and are committed to supporting Reconciliation with First Nations people.
