The Energy Innovation Toolkit is a service offered by the Australian Government to help you launch your energy business idea. Our team can help you understand energy regulation, explore options to launch under current frameworks, navigate energy sector stakeholders, and get clear guidance on who you may need to contact and why.  We can also help you access relief from regulatory barriers through proof-of-concept ‘sandbox’ trials.
