About This Report


Fossil fuel-fired power stations supply the majority of Australia's electricity. These power plants run on black coal, brown coal and natural gas, while other fuels such as petroleum are used less frequently. Industry assets represent large capital investments that are operated in the long term. The lack of operational flexibility exposes the industry to structural and regulatory changes, and industry participants have grappled with government intervention and weaker demand for centrally generated electricity over the past five years. The outcome has been lower production volumes and fluctuating wholesale electricity prices.

Companies in the industry use fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil to drive steam-producing turbines that generate electricity.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
