About us

We don’t just write about energy – we ignite it.

For almost 20 years, Energy Source & Distribution magazine has been the voice of Australia’s electricity generation, transmission and distribution industry. In 2016 the name the sector trusts went online to deliver news as it happens.

Energy Source & Distribution is directed at the senior executives, managers and engineers involved with utilities, policy development bodies, research and training institutions, manufacturers and suppliers. It offers the latest energy news and profiles the power players, product launches, industry trends and major projects that keep the sector moving at an unprecedented rate.
