Everything is big in Western Australia

Big money, big ideas and big opportunities, Western Australia is playing a leading role in Australia’s ambition to become a renewable energy superpower.

Proudly made in Western Australia

The Kwinana region of Western Australia has long been a centre for mining and energy exports. The region is also well known for manufacturing, and energy-intensive industries such as aluminium and steel making.A Kwinana/South-West REIP would build on the region's existing mining, energy, and manufacturing expertise and support the emergence of future-focused clean industries.

Making our future in Australia

The establishment of Clean Industry Hubs/REIPs and associated infrastructure, to power manufacturing with low-cost renewable energy and give our manufacturers a global edge, will create/secure jobs and prosperity for regional communities.

Australia is uniquely positioned to scale an entire industry from pit to battery

Australian Vanadium Limited is building one of the most advanced vanadium projects in the world, which is proposed to cover a fully integrated battery supply chain - from mining and refining in the Mid-West of WA to manufacturing of the key battery input vanadium electrolyte in Perth, WA.

Our rural and remote communities will benefit from microgrids and stand alone energy systems that combine solar and battery storage to deliver reliable low cost energy.

Smart solutions

Mike and the team at Mott MacDonald are working on renewables projects such as transmission and distribution as well as the smartest way to use alternative fuels, batteries and EV chargers.

Mott MacDonald combine local Australian know-how with world leading expertise to speed up the transition to Australia’s net zero emissions future.

A once-in-a-generation opportunity

Western Power is working to enable the once-in-a-generation transmission network growth required to enable industrial decarbonisation, service renewable generation and support state and regional economic growth as WA moves towards achieving net zero.

Connecting Western Australia

Zenith Energy specialises in tailored remote off-grid power generation and urban microgrids and integrates a range of energy sources to deliver reliable, low-cost and sustainable power to remote sites throughout Australia. 

Maciej “Matthew” Prusinski is part of a skilled workforce that is building, maintaining and supporting the clean energy transition in Western Australia. Manufacturing cleantech solutions here in Australia will create and secure jobs and prosperity for regional communities.

"Businesses that work together are the ones that are best placed to solve the challenges associated with building clean industry hubs"

A Renewable Energy Industrial Precinct is underway in Kwinana

Prioritising investment in shared energy infrastructure to clusters of safeguard facilities in a Kwinana/South-West WA REIP would deliver:


of additional realeconomic output


jobs per year


additional government revenue by 2050

Our report ‘Safeguarding our future’ leveraged our Renewable Energy Industrial Precinct concept with modelling by Acil Allen, and quantified for the first time the cost savings and emission reduction benefits of investing in shared infrastructure for Safeguard Facilities in industrial precincts - using Central Queensland and South Western Australia as case studies.
