We are seeking feedback on our Energy and Mining Strategy consultation paper from the energy and mining industry and the community.

What is being decided?

Carefully designed to leverage South Australia’s competitive advantages, Growth State: our plan for prosperity promotes industry growth by responding to the needs of business and industries. At its heart, Growth State articulates what government is doing, informed by what industry needs. It is a coordinated government commitment to real, concrete actions and deliverables.

The energy and mining sector has substantial prospects to responsibly develop opportunities, improve productivity and sharpen South Australia's competitiveness.

We have developed an Energy and Mining Strategy consultation paper to bring together existing government initiatives to guide the ongoing expansion of the energy and mining sector in our state. It proposes ambitious new growth targets and potential initiatives to achieve them.

Your feedback on our Energy and Mining Strategy consultation paper will help inform our collective vision, confirm the key challenges to sustained growth, and test the proposed policies, programs and projects to help drive the South Australian economy.

You can find out more about the strategy in the background tab.

How can your input influence the decision?

Your responses will inform the energy and mining sector’s priority needs in delivering stronger growth and will highlight relevant government commitments you want captured in the final design of the Energy and Mining Strategy.

Growth State – Our Plan for Prosperity

We have initiated Growth State – Our Plan for Prosperity because we recognise the need to do things differently to create a conducive environment for economic growth and a more sustainable, prosperous future for South Australians.

Removing barriers, clearing paths, facilitating, and aggregating, Growth State will be instrumental in focusing government resources and energies. Working in consultation with industry, together we will reaffirm the positive aspects of living and working in South Australia to enhance the prospect of investing here.

Substantial prospects exist within the energy and mining sector to responsibly develop opportunities, grow productivity and grow our competitiveness. The consultation paper for an Energy and Mining Strategy outlines current programs and potential further action to support Growth State in this critical sector of the economy.

This strategy brings together others already in place, such as the Copper Strategy, Magnetite Strategy, Hydrogen Road Map and the Roundtable for Oil and Gas. It also incorporates current government programs including the Clean Energy Transition and new initiatives such as the Accelerated Discovery Initiative, Battery and Emerging Minerals Strategy and the Electric Vehicle Strategy foreshadowed in the 2019- 2020 State Budget.

The consultation paper we are seeking feedback on defines the scope of the energy and mining sector and suggests ambitious targets to support industry in outlining what matters to business to encourage confidence, further investment and address barriers to growth. The final strategy will inform government of the energy and mining sector’s priority needs in delivering stronger growth and will highlight relevant government commitments.

Government will respond to sector strategies through the Growth State work plan.
