ARENA is the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, a commercially oriented agency. It was established on 1 July 2012 by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency Act 2011.
ARENA has two objectives:
ARENA’s timeframe for delivering its objectives is 2022, with an intent to provide competitive energy solutions up to 2030-40.
An Australian economy and society increasingly powered by competitive renewable energy.
ARENA shares knowledge to help the renewable energy industry and other stakeholders learn from each other’s experiences.
We provide advice to Australian business on ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and manage energy more efficiently and productively. Our advice spans:
– best practice energy and carbon management strategies
– identifying emissions reduction projects and on site renewable energy opportunities. We analyse energy data, forecast demand, support business case development, conduct due diligence and evaluate finance and funding options
– technical support for reporting carbon emissions levels and strategies to achieve reductions. These obligations can arise through both government compliance programs and increasingly in response to shareholder, customer and community scrutiny.
– contracting for electricity, gas and renewable energy supply. Energetics provides price forecasts and strategies for managing risks in Australia’s increasingly volatile markets.
We help our clients prepare for changes years ahead of their competitors, and unlock new business opportunities in the emerging low carbon economy.
Renewables for Mining (r4mining) Facilitates Mining’s Transition to Renewables.
Renewables for Mining helps miners and energy business developers which want to produce efficiently by reducing operational energy costs and mitigating CSR risks thanks to a set of business intelligence metrics successfully proven in appraisal other industrial sectors.
This proprietary technology assist to decision makers through a set of toolS as the r4m KPI, customized management ratios, enhanced departamental dashboards and predictive value models that demonstrate how asset and share values of mining companies fully increase due to the adoption of renewable energies.
Since may 2015, r4mining conducts the pre-summit workshops for the “Energy and Mines” conferences at Canada, South Africa, UK and Chile.
The Institute comprises companies, agencies, individuals and academics with an interest in solar energy research, technology, manufacturing, systems, policies, programs and projects.
Participation in APVI activities is on the basis of subscriptions or sponsorship of research and events. Benefits include regular events and newsletters, networking, and the opportunity to work with local and international PV experts on submissions, reports and research projects.
In addition to Australian activities, we provide the structure through which Australia participates in two International Energy Agency (IEA) programs – PVPS (Photovoltaic Power Systems), made up of a number of activities concerning various aspects of PV, and SHC (Solar Heating and Cooling), concerned with new solar thermal products and services.
The Association of Mining and Exploration Companies (AMEC), is the peak industry representative body for mineral exploration and mining throughout Australia with offices in Perth and Brisbane.
Founded in 1981, our purpose is to facilitate a positive political and economic environment to grow the exploration and mining industry on behalf of our members.
We are regarded as an extremely professional, credible and effective advocate for the industry by governments, stakeholders, and our growing membership base.
