Doing Business in South Australia


Print

South Australia aims to be one of the most welcoming and competitive jurisdictions for renewable energy businesses.

Renewable energy investment creates two forms of business opportunities.

First, there are the specific market opportunities that flow directly from that investment. In relation to the direct opportunities, this includes the promotion of new market and business opportunities in the renewable energy supply chain. Such opportunities give rise to diversification of existing businesses capabilities in the State.

The Federal Government's Clean Energy Innovation Centre offers a range of services including:

  • identifying commercial opportunities and assembling value chains to pursue those opportunities  
  • providing international market intelligence to clean energy companies
  • undertaking work to enable a better understanding of the characteristics and capability of the sector in Australia
  • connecting companies with technical and commercial partners to drive commercialisation and export of their technologies

Second, there is the competitive advantage created for industry by using less carbon in its production process. Renewable energy is one of the ingredients which goes into the mix to create a reputation for a low-carbon, sustainable economy. The competitive advantages of a low-carbon economy are only starting to emerge. RenewablesSA is preparing South Australia to position itself to take advantage of these opportunities.
