Development of renewable energy projects
Developing a Legacy
Our proven approach to selecting and developing wind and solar projects involves a number of key steps.
CWP has been developing projects in Australia since 2007 with our key development activities coordinated from our NSW base in Newcastle. Our unique offering is to manage each project from inception through to full operation. This philosophy is key to our success and involves genuine engagement with all stakeholders, particularly landowners, at every stage of the development.
At all stages of development we partner with landowners, technology providers and suppliers to innovate and realise the potential of each project. We believe strong partnerships carry projects further up the value chain. Our commitment to value for all stakeholders is unwavering.
A growing pipeline in an expanding market.
Our team is constantly prospecting and innovating to create new opportunities in the renewable energy space. Our commitment to the full project lifecycle ensures we focus on securing all land, permitting and social licences to successfully construct and operate each project we develop.
Our combined wind, solar and battery portfolio is unique in the marketplace, setting us apart from other solar developers. Our portfolio can provide a managed pool of generation, through wind, solar and battery projects, that will be to be sold to the market as firm (or baseload) electricity to consumers. This is an important nuance which is linked to the impact an increasing penetration of standalone solar generation will have across the National Electricity Market (NEM).
This approach is evident in the New England region in NSW, where we are underway with the construction (and early generation) of the 270 MW Sapphire Wind Farm, and currently developing a complementary 170 MW solar and battery project. These two projects combine to realise the full potential of the strong relationships we have built with community, government and technology partners in over a decade of developing in NSW.
