Innovation can be incremental, step change or disruptive. NERA seeks to understand how innovation is impacting the global energy industry today as well as our future competitiveness, and initiate projects that help industry negotiate the way through the challenges ahead.

NERA supports projects that are of broad benefit to Australia’s energy resources by:

  • Conceptualising the key opportunities for innovation and collaboration
  • Supporting industry-led projects which commercialise innovation and research

NERA provides a channel between the operators, the service sector and the research community to solve the key industry challenges and opportunities. NERA’s long-term goal is to ensure Australia’s energy resources sector remains at the forefront of global technology and science innovation.
