We are answering Australia’s call for cleaner energy.

At Vena Energy Australia, we develop, build, own and operate utility-scale renewable energy power stations in communities across Australia. We are part of Vena Energy, one of the largest independent power producers (IPP) in the Asia Pacific region.

Featured Projects

Wandoan_South_Solar

Wandoan South Solar Project

Queensland
650MW

The Wandoan South Project is located in the heart of the Surat Basin near Wandoan, 400km north-west of Brisbane, in south-west Queensland. The WSP will be delivered across several stages with the potential to be one of Australia’s largest projects once completed.

Wandoan South BESS

Queensland
100MW

The Wandoan South Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is located near Wandoan, 400km north-west of Brisbane in south-west Queensland. The BESS will have a discharge capacity of up to 100MW and store 150MWh of energy, which could power up to 57,000 average homes annually.

Tailem-Bend-Solar-Project-Stage-2

Tailem Bend Solar Project Stage Two

South Australia
87MW

Adjacent to our Tailem Bend Stage One Solar Project, Stage Two of the project has an estimated generation capacity of 87 megawatts (MWac) and consists of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, it will supply power equivalent to the annual needs of 37,000 homes once completed.

Our Commitments

Sustainability is at the heart of all that we do at Vena Energy Australia. Inspired by our Latin namesake, Vena Energy Australia aims to become the vessel that accelerates the transition to renewable energy within Australia. We are committed to empowering and enriching our host communities, their environment and local economies.

Notes

  1. Households Powered is based on annual household electricity consumption of each operating country derived from Residential Electricity Consumption data obtained from the International Energy Agency (2018) and number of households data derived from population data from United Nations (2019) and household size data taken from United Nations (2019) and Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting.
  2. Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Reduction is calculated assuming that the generation from renewable energy plants replaces an equal quantity of electricity generated using coal, gas and oil. Unique GHG emissions factors were calculated for each country based on respective country energy mix and emissions data obtained from BloombergNEF (2019).
  3. Water Saved is calculated based on the water consumption of solar and wind power plants compared against the various sources of power generation in each country where Vena Energy operates in. Unique water savings factors were calculated for each country based on respective country energy mix obtained from BloombergNEF (2019) and water use intensity factors from a paper titled “Water Demand Scenarios for Electricity Generation at the Global and Regional Levels” by Terrapon-Pfaff, et al., (2020).
  4. Equivalent Cars Removed from the Road is based on annual GHG emissions of passenger vehicles obtained from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, last updated: Dec 19, 2019.
  5. Equivalent Trees Planted is based on the amount of GHG sequestered by a medium growth coniferous or deciduous tree, planted in an urban setting and allowed to grow for 10 years, data obtained from the United States Environmental Protection Agency website, last updated: Dec 19, 2019
