Report: Opportunities for Renewable Energy in The Australian Water Sector (PDF 7MB)
ARENA has identified an opportunity for renewables to be integrated as a significant component of the water sector’s energy supply, and commissioned a study to investigate the potential for water sector specific funding.
The Australian water sector is a vital component of the Australian economy and livelihood, playing an important role in providing water supply and treatment to the residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors. In providing this essential function, the Australian water sector is also a large user of energy consumed during the supply, treatment and distribution of water for a wide range of uses and thus represents an excellent opportunity for renewables to be integrated as a significant component of its energy supply.
