EnergyAustralia has posted a 2018 net profit of $566m, which is 24 per cent higher than previously. The result was boosted by higher wholesale electricity prices, while parent company CLP Group says EnergyAustralia’s return on invested capital rose to 10.7 per cent, compared with just 3.3 per cent in 2014. Federal Energy Minister Angus Taylor has responded to strong earnings growth in the electricity sector by again urging generator-retailers to provide price relief for customers.
