WLPGA Member Focus – Origin Energy

Origin is Australia’s leading integrated energy company, with a rich heritage in energy exploration, production, power generation and retailing. Today, they are the leading provider of energy to homes and businesses throughout Australia, and a major energy provider in New Zealand and the Pacific.

As the largest energy retailer in Australia with 4.2 million customers, Origin’s activities include power generation, energy trading, the sale of LPG, electricity, natural gas and solar as well as the development of new and emerging technologies.

Formed in 2000 after the demerger of Boral’s energy and building & construction materials businesses, Origin has been involved in LPG for over 40 years. Their LPG operation spans every state and territory in Australia, as well as eight countries in the Asia Pacific region through wholly owned and joint venture businesses.

Origin’s end to end supply chain enables them to deliver LPG directly to customers through our ship and truck fleet, along with a growing service and installation business. For rural and remote communities in Australia, this enables Origin to provide an alternative energy source that is reliable and cost effective.  In the Pacific, Origin provides a key input to local industries such as manufacturing, agriculture, food processing and tourism.

As an integrated energy provider, Origin leverage the benefits of LPG and bundling products with renewable solutions like solar, particularly in the Pacific region where LPG can provide a bridge between fossil fuels and renewables to communities that need it most.

As an organisation that operates internationally, membership of WLPGA, with the association’s global reach, provides Origin the opportunity to share invaluable insights, knowledge and resources that will help us respond to challenges and opportunities in the diverse markets they operate in.
