AGL Energy

AGL Energy is a publicly listed company headquartered in Australia. In 2020, its revenue was USD 7.5 billion and installed capacity was 11 Gigawatts (GW). AGL is Australia's largest carbon emitter. AGL Energy announced it plans to become Accel Energy and demerge AGL Australia, and it is targeting completion of the demerger by fourth quarter of 2022. The company's demerger is a result of its difficulty reconciling its low-carbon ambitions with a reliance on fossil-fuels for 90% of its generation.

Risks and opportunities


AGL receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. This is due its lack of demanding targets. AGL’s targets are unable to affect its absolute emissions trends as they are tied to specific closure dates for its largest emitting plants and so do not drive significant emissions reductions in the years between closures. AGL’s demerger will result in two companies with very different transition plans. AGL Australia will be carbon neutral for scope 1 and 2 while Accel Energy will contain significant fossil fuel capacity.
