Western Australia showcases its diverse energy and technology capability to the world at ONS 2022

01 September 2022

Western Australia (WA) is on the world stage this week at the Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) conference in Norway.

Eleven partners from across WA Government, industry, research, and technology supply chains have come together to form ‘Team WA’, showcasing Western Australia as a global energy hub and a leading source of technology and innovation at the major international energy conference.

NERA is proud to join ‘Team WA’ as a Platinum Partner, and is supporting three WA-based low-emissions technology businesses and recent LETs Pitch WA winners 9 Tech Solutions, KC8 Capture Technologies and Oceania Marine Energy to join the Western Australia contingent at ONS 2022.

The three WA businesses are participating in the Western Australia stand and are also joining technology innovators from across the globe at the brand-new ONS Scale-Up Arena, where they are demonstrating the technology that won them their position in ‘Team WA’.

In the lead-up to ONS, NERA partnered with the WA Government Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation on LETs Pitch WA — a supply chain development program developed to accelerate the growth of local low-emissions technology businesses.

NERA CEO Miranda Taylor says the LETs Pitch program is focussed on supporting SMEs to build their business capability by providing them with the communication tools required to help showcase their technology offering and connect into local and global supply chains.

“NERA’s LETs Pitch program is about assisting innovative low-emissions technology businesses to hone their pitching capability and translate their technology offering into a market opportunity.”

“Through LETs Pitch WA and our participation in ‘Team WA’, we’re showing the world that WA is home to some of the most exciting technology developments on offer to global audiences,” said Ms Taylor.

The ’Team WA’ contingent at ONS 2022 promotes Western Australia’s unique set of strengths and capabilities to the world, from a highly skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure, to abundant resources and outstanding research and education institutions. The stand showcases our state’s diversity across six themes:

  • Fuelling the energy transition & decarbonisation
  • Renewable energy
  • Technology and innovation
  • Investment
  • Work and skills
  • Research and education

NERA was proud to join the WA Government Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation and the WA Government Investment and Trade European Office to lead this major collaborative effort to coordinate ‘Team WA’ and deliver a high-profile exhibition pavilion stand to showcase the state of Western Australia and its global status as a leading energy hub fuelling the energy transition.

‘Team WA’ includes AOG Energy 2023, Chevron, CODA (Centre of Decommissioning Australia), Curtin University – Institute for Energy Transition, DevelopmentWA, FEnEx CRC, INPEX, NERA (National Energy Resources Australia) and accompanying LETs Pitch WA winners, RemSense, Shell and Woodside.
