About us

RES has been developing renewable energy in Australia since 2004, and we currently have several major projects nearing completion. We're building wind farms that generate pollution free electricity, contribute to a cleaner environment and have a positive economic effect on their local communities.

RES is behind 350 MW (megawatts) of renewable energy installed or currently under construction across New South Wales and Victoria. For example, the 240 MW Ararat wind farm is a A $450 million project financed by shareholders Partners Group, RES, OPTrust and GE. It will be the third largest wind farm in Australia and includes 75 turbines producing enough energy to power up to 123,000 local homes. We also have several other significant sites going through feasibility studies.

What we do

Our highly experienced energy team is based in Sydney, and includes specialists in developing, engineering, constructing and connecting renewable energy projects. We have all the commercial and financial expertise needed to take a project from planning to completion, at utility, commercial or industrial scale.

We also use specialist staff from other areas of RES when we need to - such as turbine procurement, measurement services, technical analysis and asset management.

In-depth knowledge of the grid and regulatory expertise have helped us diversify. Our projects now cover onshore and offshore wind, solar and transmission - and we’re investigating efficient locally generated energy solutions, such as energy storage and demand side management. The latter uses state-of-the-art technology to control electrical equipment in seconds to create a plentiful and flexible energy capacity.

Landowners and communities

Wherever we work, we talk to local people about what our projects mean to them, and how they will bring tangible benefits to their communities. We do this through public meetings, information brochures, site visits, and direct contact with residents, charities and schools. And, where possible, we use local businesses and suppliers on our projects.

We also support community charity initiatives with funds from wind farm revenues.

Landowners who choose RES as a partner benefit from:

  • regular income
  • minimal disturbance to existing land activities
  • complete project management
  • greener energy
  • contributions towards reasonable legal fees
  • restoration of land at the end of a project's lifecycle
