Hazelwood's closure

In November 2016, the French company Engie announced it would close its Hazelwood power plant and mine in the Latrobe Valley on 31 March 2017. Engie made this decision on a commercial basis and because it is divesting out of brown coal assets. Read the Premier's media release on Engie's decision.
