We share knowledge, insights and data from our funded projects to help the renewable energy industry and other projects learn from each other’s experiences.
Knowledge sharing is a vital part of our role. All ARENA-funded activities include sharing knowledge through reports, publications, guides, models and resources, forums, workshops, conferences, site visits, website, content media and social media.
ARENA funds knowledge sharing activities through our Advancing Renewables Program. These activities are focused on creating, collecting, analysing, storing, using or sharing knowledge. As well as building knowledge, these activities can also build networks that strengthen industry capacity, collaborations and partnerships.
We share knowledge on our website. You can search through reports, resources, guides and models to find in-depth knowledge. And you can see this knowledge sharing come to life on our blog ARENAWIRE.
Visit our Knowledge Bank
The Knowledge Bank is a open-source library of reports, studies and tools that provide guidance and learnings to benefit future renewable energy projects.
These resources are useful for everyone. That means industry, researchers, financiers and investors, governments and regulators, and the wider Australian community.
The benefits of knowledge sharing
Sharing knowledge helps to improve industry capability and makes project delivery more effective. It provides relevant information and evidence to develop better policies and projects that support the shift to affordable and reliable renewable energy.
Sharing skills, experience and understanding can improve research, raise awareness and overcome barriers to increase the use of renewable energy.
And shared knowledge allows us to accelerate the development of renewable energy technologies that suit Australia’s diverse geography, as well as the needs of our households and businesses.
How we share knowledge
Knowledge sharing includes a wide range of activities aimed at advancing renewables. This includes our online knowledge bank, as well as forums, workshops, conferences, site visits, our website, content media and social media.
We have identified priority areas where data, information and know-how will be valuable and help the renewable energy industry to grow. We call it our high-value knowledge list. Refer to the ARENA Investment Plan for more information.
