Infigen Energy is a developer, owner and operator of renewable generation with interests in 24 wind farms (1,646 MW equity interest) across Australia and the US.
The social and political environment for renewable energy is particularly favourable. With the increased focus on sustainability and broader environmental concerns, renewable energy is now an essential and growing component of a low emission energy mix. The global wind energy industry in particular is experiencing significant growth – as demonstrated by a 24.1% increase in global installed capacity in 2010*.
- Infigen Energy generates enough power across its portfolio to meet the needs of over 500,000 homes.
- Infigen Energy's renewable energy generation represents a saving of approximately 4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
Infigen Energy was formed in June 2003 and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in October 2005.
The name Infigen is derived from the words infinite and generation: infinite, reflecting the unlimited availability of renewable fuel sources such as wind and solar radiation; and generation, relating to the core function of Infigen’s business - renewable energy generation.
The Infigen identity is inspired by what we do as a business: we harness natural, renewable energy from the environment. The ‘Energised Landscape’ represents the abundance of natural, sustainable energy and also hints at the scale of opportunity for Infigen Energy’s business growth.
Infigen Energy's ASX code is IFN.
