The Perth USAsia Centre, Deloitte, The Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA and the University of Western Australia on 22nd November jointly launched the landmark publication "A State of Energy: Strategic, Commercial and Innovation Drivers in Western Australia." The launch of the publication occured at a sundowner event at Deloitte's skyline offices in Perth.
- 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.
- The report lays transparent the sigficiant production levels and proven reserves of Western Australian natural gas, crude oil, condensate, black coal and uranium; as well as current energy extraction from wind, solar, wood, biofuels and hydro renewables.
- As part of the research, the collaborators considered the connection between local and international markets; legacy infrastructure; consumption patterns and future developments. The 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.
- This publication was co-authored by Andrew Pickford, Joe Doleschal-Ridnell and Mark Stickells and is part of the Perth USAsia Centre's Deloitte-partnered Indo-Pacific Energy Security Program.
