It’s time to innovate

a-lab logoA-Lab is bringing together a diverse network of people with the expertise and passion to drive systemic change in the electricity sector.

Together, we will work to define solutions to the most complex challenges involved in transitioning to a renewable energy system by combining the respective strengths of participants in order to build momentum for change.

A-Lab uses a structured innovation process that leads a diverse range of people and their ideas through a best practice innovation methodology.

There are three types of A-Lab events and working sessions:

  • Ideate events are used to generate new ideas for projects that address systemic change
  • Incubate working sessions provide a structured, focused space for teams to develop project ideas with support from industry experts
  • Accelerate workshops are collaborative, facilitated processes intended to support the co-design of large, multi-stakeholder ARENA funding programs

Who? A diverse network
