This Week’s Highlight: Advisory sought on Diversifying the Use of Coal

The use of renewable resources and the reduction in fossil fuel consumption is always high on the national and world wide sustainability agenda. However this week we look at a different perspective on the topic, with the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources issuing a Request for Tender (RFT) seeking a consultancy to look into Diversifying the Use of Coal.

This requirement stems from the government’s announcement earlier this year to commit $20.1 million in the 2021-22 budget to diversify our resources export markets in the form of a Global Resources Strategy (GRS). The scope of work under this RFT seeks to gather market indicators and understand the research and development interest, drivers and objectives for non-traditional uses of high-emissions commodities, such as coal. The resources sector is seen to be a major contributor to the country’s prosperity and economic wellbeing. Coal in particular will continue to play an important role in the world’s energy mix for years to come. However, changes to the global energy mix are projected, and opportunities also exist to invest in research, development and commercialization of alternative uses for resources such as coal.

This RFT is seeking a consultant with demonstrated experience in conducting market analysis, research, and commercialization assessment, with proven market intelligence capabilities. An understanding of the resources sector, including latest R&D trends to improve the efficiency and sustainability of mining processes and strategies, would be beneficial. The scope of work will include undertaking market research, commercialisation assessment and analysis of the current R&D, managing consultation with stakeholders necessary to complete the analysis accompanied by routine reporting and a final analysis and recommendation within 6 months of commencement.

There is an Industry Briefing on 2 September via Webex with the RFT closing on the 17 September 2021. Timeframe for the contract is expected to be 1 October 2021 –  1 April 2022
