CS Energy is an Australia-based electricity generating company owned by the Government of Queensland with its head office located in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. The company was established in 1997 and employs more than 490 staff.[2]

The company uses a diverse mix of fuels to operate 2,470 megawatts (MW) of electricity generating plant and has a total generating capacity of 2,970 MW distributed throughout Queensland. At present, the company owns and operates Kogan Creek Power Station, Wivenhoe Power Station,[3] and Callide A and Callide B, and together with InterGen (in a joint venture, managed by Callide Power Management) 50% of Callide C Power Station.[4]

CS Energy was awarded A$32 million in 2010 to help construct Australia's first large-scale solar thermal project at Kogan Creek Power Station.[5] Funding was provided by the Rudd Government under the Renewable Energy Demonstration Program.

In 2007, the Chief Executive Officer, Mark Chatfield, was stood down by the board after allegations of inappropriate share dealings were raised.[6]
