It’s time to innovate

We are 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.

Why? Systemic change

A-Lab fills a critical gap in the innovation landscape, providing a forum for strategic problem solving to drive systemic change.


What? Tools + approaches

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

Broad participation ensures diverse perspectives are included in the process and improves reframing of systemic challenges.

More than 500 people from hundreds of organisations have participated in A-Lab events.


Objectives

A-Lab has three core objectives:

OBJECTIVE 1:
Projects driving systemic change – through our process we will enable the design of new projects, initiatives and businesses that accelerate the transition to clean energy.

OBJECTIVE 2:
Collaborative community – to deliver systemic innovation we will foster collaboration across a diverse group of participants, representing all parts of the energy system.

OBJECTIVE 3:
Building innovation capability – we will empower our participants with new skills and capabilities to creatively solve the industry’s biggest challenges.
