About Us

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.

We are a leading Australian renewable energy developer and owner, and we are owned and backed by the largest electricity utility in Malaysia, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), which acquired Spark Renewables in October 2023.

TNB has ~16 GW of existing generation capacity globally, and has a significant pipeline of renewable energy developments across the world that it is targeting to construct over the coming years.

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.

Safety comes first

We prioritise the health and well-being of our teams, contractors, and communities in which we operate.

It's the community

We join communities and we build connections that drive us to have a lasting, positive impact.

Empathy matters 

We understand our developments impact local communities. We engage openly and honestly and work with each community to create programs that will deliver benefits for decades to come.

It’s a team thing

We are stronger together. We aim big, work hard and give our team the freedom to be flexible. We hire people with a renewables vision, empowering them to win together and to drive change.

Integrity & authenticity

How we do business matters to us. We are committed to good governance and we always operate with integrity, transparency and authenticity.

Keep it local

We aim to source local content, employ within the community and support people who face traditional barriers.

We're committed to doing what's right.

Our approach

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.

Commitment to best practice 

Spark Renewables is a member of the Clean Energy Council and a signatory to the Council’s Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Projects. This is a set of voluntary commitments to engage respectfully with the communities around us, to be sensitive to environmental and cultural values, and to make a positive contribution to the regions in which we operate. 

Pledge against modern slavery

Spark Renewables is a signatory to the Pledge Against Modern Slavery – developed by the Clean Energy Council as part of an industry-wide response to addressing modern slavery risks. The pledge commits Spark Renewables to practices designed to ensure our supply chain is free of adverse human rights impacts, including modern slavery, and declare its corporate responsibility to respect human rights.

Committed to Reconciliation

Spark Renewables has in place a Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan and is committed to creating lasting, positive change for Aboriginal communities. We acknowledge that setting a benchmark in the First Nations participation plans implemented for each of our projects is important to promote the economic empowerment of First Nations people.

Why does what we do, matter?

Switching to renewable power generation and energy storage reduces demand for resources that are from finite sources, or that rely on air and water polluting technologies to generate electricity.

Reducing the emission of greenhouse gases helps to mitigate global warming and its associated negative impacts on our world.

When we succeed in building new renewable energy projects that serve communities, we do our bit for reducing the emission intensity of electricity generation, and towards achieving the 2050 net zero target.

We believe that access to an abundant supply of energy that is cheap to produce and doesn't harm the environment is fundamental to our economy, reducing our dependence on energy supply from overseas, which can be impacted by supply-chain and geopolitical issues outside of Australia's control. Being locally self-sufficient for our energy needs promotes food, water and energy security. A resource that is renewable and available to generations to come, helps reduce cost-of-living pressures and strengthens international security.

Renewable energy.
It's in our nature.
