Researching a cleaner energy future
ATCO delivers safe, reliable and affordable energy to more than 750,000 domestic and business connections in Western Australia.
As consumer needs change, so are we, which is why we are investing in research, development and training.
In addition to commissioning research like WA’s Energy Future Report, we’re developing our Clean Energy Innovation Hub (CEIH) in Jandakot, Western Australia as part of our commitment to a cleaner energy future.
Clean Energy Innovation Hub
Our industry-leading Clean Energy Innovation Hub will be a test bed for hybrid energy solutions and will integrate natural gas, solar PV, battery storage and hydrogen production.
The Clean Energy Innovation Hub will provide valuable insights into how our extensive existing gas distribution infrastructure can continue to benefit customers as part of the future energy mix.
Complementary energy solutions
We know that natural gas already delivers a lower-carbon alternative to many traditional energy sources, and we believe it is ideally placed to complement and further enable the continued implementation of intermittent renewable energy.
At the same time, we are committed to further reduce the carbon footprint of the gas distribution network and provide ongoing secure, reliable, affordable and low-carbon energy options. We are excited about the opportunities presented by the Clean Energy Innovation Hun and believe it will help drive clean energy research that can have major long term benefits for consumers.
Powering our people
Change is coming and we’re making sure our workforce is prepared. By continually upskilling our people, we’re making sure WA will have the energy workforce to support new energy technology.
