Delivering programs to promote collaboration, drive innovation and boost competitiveness for the energy and resources sector.
The NSW Energy and Resources Knowledge Hub is a 2014 initiative of the NSW Government to support NSW business by sharing knowledge and expertise that helps overcome challenges in the energy and resources sector.
Led by the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources and harnessing the power of key stakeholders from industry, research and government, the Hub provides access to new tools, services and pathways to accelerate technology and business development.
The Hub is focussed on growing NSW businesses by connecting them to a strong, powerful statewide network that gives SMEs the support and resources needed to thrive in their local region, and be competitive in global markets.
The Hub seeks to break down geographical barriers to collaboration and innovation, to help businesses link in, collaborate and share information and resources to find economical solutions that will promote business growth.
It operates under two key focus areas:
The objective of Resources NSW is to leverage the strong existing relationship between key stakeholders under a collaborative platform to share information and deliver initiatives to boost the productivity, efficiency and international competitiveness of the Resources sector in NSW.
Focus areas include:
- METS (Mining Equipment, Technology and Services) that provide innovative solutions for the optimisation, efficiency, productivity and sustainability of the resources sector.
- Future Mining – the application of new technologies and resource strategies to support efficiency and enterprise improvements across the minerals value chain.
- Resource Recovery – development and deployment of technologies and strategies to support sustainable communities.
The Hub also delivers programs to help address the challenges of energy security, efficiency, productivity and resources sustainability.
Energy NSW was established by the Hub to support the energy, equipment and services sector for NSW. It shares information and knowledge, and supports energy businesses to navigate the complex and changing energy landscape to bring new energy technologies to market.
