Naturgy operates in Australia through its subsidiary Global Power Generation (GPG), the Naturgy Group company engaged in international generation and with a 25% stake in Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA) through Wren House Infrastructure.

GPG has been operating in the country since June 2008. Its head office is based in Sydney and it has wind energy projects in the States of Victoria and New South Wales.

It is the fourth-largest developer in Australia in terms of the size of its project portfolio, which are in excellent locations for wind resources and connectivity. Approximately 500 MW are ready for development should contracts be awarded.

Crookwell II Wind Farm

Opened in November 2018, this project is located in New South Wales, 90 kilometres from Canberra, the capital of Australia.

The facility has a power capacity of 91 MW, 28 wind turbines and it will be able to supply 42,000 homes in Canberra thanks to generating 300,000 megawatts/hour per year of renewable electricity.

The company has invested 177 million Australian Dollars (approximately 110 million euros) into constructing this park which was awarded in the third quarter of 2016. The generated energy is subject to a 20 year regulated tariff contract.

O proxecto de Crookwell II supón a construción do primeiro activo de xeración de GPG en Australia, abrindo novas posibilidades nun país cun gran potencial de explotación enerxética no referente ao sector de renovables, tanto para plantas fotovoltaicas, debido ao seu índice solar, como para parques eólicos, pola súa cantidade de vento. 

Como elemento innovador e mostra do compromiso co desenvolvemento económico local, requirimento clave por parte do Goberno de ACT para os proxectos participantes na poxa, propúxose a iniciativa “Renewable Power to Gas (ReP2G)”. Esta implica o financiamento e transferencia de coñecemento para investigación e desenvolvemento en tecnoloxías punteiras para xeración e uso de hidróxeno partindo de excedentes de produción renovable, así como noutras tecnoloxías enerxéticas centradas no hidróxeno. 

Parque eólico Berrybank

O Goberno de Victoria anunciou, en novembro de 2018, a adxudicación a Global Power Generation (GPG) dun total de 180 MW de potencia de xeración nun proxecto eólico situado a aproximadamente 150 km da cidade de Melbourne.
A construción do parque, denominado Berrybank, supoñerá un investimento total de 259 millóns de dólares australianos (aproximadamente 166 millóns de euros) e prevese que empece a operar no segundo  semestre de 2020.
