RenewablesSA is an initiative of the South Australian Government to support the further growth of South Australia’s renewable energy industry.
RenewablesSA commenced in mid 2009, coinciding with the announcement by the South Australian Government to increase the state’s renewable energy production target to 33 per cent by 2020.
The initiative was the Government’s response to a key recommendation by the Economic Development Board to position South Australia as a leader in renewable energy. In its Economic Statement in March 2009, the Economic Development Board identified renewable energy as an important industry for South Australia’s economic future and recommended strategies to promote technological innovation in a diverse range of technologies, fast track demonstration plants, minimise regulatory impediments and secure industry investment.
RenewablesSA can be contacted through the Department of Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy.
