The "WA Energy Map" project has been undertaken to show the energy potential for Western Australia and, for the first time, bring together different energy strands which too often work in isolation. It is a collaboration between The University of Western Australia, Perth USAsia Centre and Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA who are each involved in different parts of the energy sector. As part of the research, the collaborators considered the connection between local and international markets; legacy infrastructure; consumption patterns and future developments. This report is designed to support energy decision makers in a government, academia and business. With the right policies, investment climate and innovation, Western Australia has the potential to become an energy giant.
