Energy Reform - The way forward for Australia - Final report


The Energy Reform Implementation Group (ERIG) was a group established by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to review certain elements of the operation of Australia’s energy sector and to suggest further reforms, where there is a case for them, supporting more efficient energy markets.

Long Term Training Strategy on Energy Efficiency Assessment Skills Reports


In 2009, the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism coordinated a large energy-efficiency skills research project on Australia’s highest energy-using companies: the Long-term Training Strategy on Energy Efficiency Assessment Skills. This identified skills gaps and shortages that may be limiting their ability to fully realise their energy efficiency potential. Skills gaps and shortages were found within the trades sector, as well as in key professions such as engineering, accounting, business and management.

Energy Efficiency Opportunities Program - research of senior level executives


This report details the results from a survey of C-level executives who were asked for opinions and attitudes towards energy efficiency.

Information was gathered through a quantitative research among executives from organisations participating in the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism’s Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) Program. A total of 60 of 220 companies participating in the program at the time were included in the survey.

Energy Efficiency and Engineering Education – Briefing Note for Engineering Practitioners and Educators


This document is intended as a preliminary guide to energy efficiency, discussing both interdisciplinary and discipline-specific (specialist) attributes identified as desirable in engineering graduates. It also outlines the knowledge and skills needed to establish these attributes (learning pathways).
