Responsible for the South Australian Governments priority area Realising the Benefits of the Mining Boom for All, the division delivers outcomes that continue to build South Australias international profile and strengthen the states economic prosperity, through sustainable development, best-practice regulation and delivery of energy markets and programs.
The division aims to maximise the communitys net benefits from the states ownership of the rights to petroleum and geothermal resources. It is responsible for driving petroleum (oil and gas); greenhouse gas storage and geothermal energy exploration, development and production.
Leads investment, case management and regulation for all the full minerals value chain, including the collection and promotion of precompetitive data to exploration, mining activity and closure.
An integrated one-stop-shop framework for industry is delivered from initial exploration to operating mines and eventual rehabilitation, through the provision of leadership, policy, case management, advice and regulation.
PACE 2020 is part of this division and is a key economic driver designed to underpin successful exploration, leading to new resource discoveries and new mining and resource developments.
The Government Building Energy Efficiency Investment (GBEEI) program administered by the Department of State Development (DSD) aims to reduce the Government's energy use and operational costs by improving the energy efficiency of government-owned buildings.
The program will be delivered in two stages. Milestone 1 is to identify energy efficiency upgrade opportunities in sites that use 30% of the total energy usage of government-owned buildings. Milestone 2 will be for the remaining sites.
Approved projects will have an average simple payback of seven years or less. Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) has been nominated as the principal way to deliver the projects thereby ensuring that the performance of the energy efficiency upgrades is achieved. Approved smaller, simpler projects may be conducted via a Measurement and Verification process equivalent to that laid out in the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP).
The purpose of this portal is to establish a pre-qualified list of Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) for the GBEEI program. Pre-qualified members will have demonstrated required competencies in a multitude of technical disciplines, previous experience in delivering EPC projects, and/or attained Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme accreditation. International accreditation related to EPC will be considered. Members will also have demonstrated the ability to comply with the South Australian Industry Participation Policy.
ESCOs interested in being on the pre-qualification list can apply anytime while the program is in effect. Current EPC panel members in Vic or NSW will be automatically admitted onto the pre-qualification list upon the submission of the Response Schedule, pending only on the Declaration of Intent assessment.
While the application will be an on-going process, there are new tranches for 2017 that respond to the expected time frames of bundled projects.
