2023 year in review

The utility sector underwent some huge growth in 2023, primarily due to increased investment in renewable energy and water projects.

As the global and national focus shifts to preserving the environment and chasing net zero goals, Australia’s utilities must undergo some big changes to help achieve these targets. Batteries, solar and hydrogen were frequently on the agenda this year, as were upgrades to outdated equipment in the water and power sectors. 

Let’s take a look at Utility magazine’s top five most-read stories for 2023. 

Our most popular story of the year covered the commencement of works on a new desalination plant at Marree, South Australia.

The second most-read story for 2023 was about the new 117km Fitzroy to Gladstone pipeline near Rockhampton, Queensland.

Environmental approval for the Alkimos Seawater Desalination Plant takes the third spot on our most-read stories list, looking at the environmental approval received from state and federal regulators.

Our fourth most popular story of 2023 was on the completion of a major relocation project of two large water mains in Western Australia.

Finally, our fifth most-read story of the year looked at the Hydrogen Park Murray Valley renewable hydrogen plant project which achieved financial close. 

From all of us at Utility Magazine, we wish you happy holidays and a safe new year.

Utility enews will be back on 8 January.
