Ten-year roadmap for Australia’s energy resources sector released

National Energy Resources Australia (NERA) has released a 10-year roadmap to boost competitiveness in Australia’s coal, oil and gas, and uranium energy resources industries.

NERA, one the six growth centres under the Australian Government’s Industry Growth Centres Initiative, works in collaboration with resources companies, their supply chains, governments, and researchers to support the growth of the energy industry.

The Energy Resources Sector Competitiveness plan, launched at the Australasian Oil and Gas expo in Perth this week, aims to ensure Australia’s resources sector remains competitive in the long term.

Minister for resources and Northern Australia, Matt Canavan said it highlights steps for sector’s continued prosperity despite several challenges including volatile commodity prices.

“NERA’s plan has identified how the sector can work together to enhance operational models and technology capabilities; improve capacity, skills and culture; and address the regulatory environment in which it operates,” Canavan said.

“The Australian Government has established six growth centres to encourage collaboration in areas of competitive strength.

“I welcome this plan to provide a long-term road map for the sector, to ensure it continues to create jobs and opportunities in regional Australia.”
