The 2023 Resources, Energy, and Industry Innovation Forum


Co-hosted by Regional Development Australia Orana and the Association of Mining and Energy Related Councils NSW and with support from the NSW Energy and Resources Knowledge Hub, the four-day forum brought together esteemed energy industry experts, business representatives, and thought leaders to deliberate on the transition towards a net-zero future.

Some 64 speakers presented to nearly 500 participants over the four-day event following the theme ‘towards a zero emissions future’.

RDA Orana, CEO Megan Dixon said the forum provided a collaborative approach for business, industry and government to discuss the challenges and opportunities of a zero-emissions future.

“Being part of the renewable energy zone, puts the region in an enviable position to value add and build on what has already been invested in,” she said.

“Participants heard first-hand from experts in the field, to help navigate the changing landscape of what a low-emissions future looks like.”

The forum highlighted the impacts faced by regional NSW and worked towards problem-solving around workforce, skills, housing and community engagement.

Ms Dixon said participants learnt about projects and initiatives that were driving greater economic growth, industry collaboration, research and innovation as well as increased public and private investment within the resources and energy sector in regional NSW.
