As part of John Holland’s expansion into new markets, we’ve recently launched John Holland’s energy and renewables business, targeting the growing pipeline of renewable energy projects. With the Australian government setting a target of a 43 percent reduction in emissions by 2030, the need for investment in energy is more significant than ever before.

To capitalise on this opportunity, John Holland has appointed Norman Lovemore to lead this focus on the energy and transmissions markets. Norm has been with John Holland for seven years and was formerly General Manager of Precontracts for our Infrastructure and Major Projects businesses. He brings enormous experience in the planning, design and delivery of complex infrastructure.

John Holland has a long history in the energy and transmission markets – starting with the original Snowy hydro scheme in the 60’s, major transmission projects into the 2000s, and, most recently, delivering one of the biggest pumped hydro plants in Australia at Kidston, west of Townsville, for Genex. 

The December 2022 Infrastructure Australia Market Capacity Report recognises that the development of pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) is crucial to meeting the renewable energy target. Australia has one of the highest levels of PHES potential in the world, and John Holland's expertise in this area will be invaluable. 

Our capability, particularly in tunnelling, civil engineering, and mechanical and electrical engineering, positions us well to win and deliver large and complex infrastructure programs.  

With Australia's investment in energy infrastructure set to reach AUD $80 billion over the next 15 years, we're up for the challenge of helping shape Australia's renewable energy future.
