Australian-owned energy companies in 2023

Interested in buying local? Here’s who owns the energy companies you see in Australia.

It doesn't matter to everyone, but doing business with companies that are fully or partly Australian owned means there's a better chance the profits stay in the country. This can help promote local jobs or make you feel better about supporting local businesses.

Since it's not clear from a casual glance which energy companies are Australian and which are part of foreign conglomerates, we've done the work for you on who owns what.
