Risks and Opportunities


AGL receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. AGL’s transition is reliant on the closure of its coal-fired power stations. As these are not scheduled until 2035, the company is not expected to significantly reduce its emissions intensity in the near future. The company has identified several new business models, including using smart meter data to empower customers and working with farms on renewable microgrid and battery storage projects. It is also investing in research and development (R&D) in these areas. However, AGL needs to rapidly scale up these models, as currently only 10% of its revenue and 2.6% of its CapEx are attributed to low-carbon sources.
