The Federal Government has established a national Clean 21 Technology Innovation Network to help small and medium businesses reduce running costs and become more competitive, sustainable and help protect the environment.

The Clean 21 Technology Innovation Network is being delivered by Enterprise Connect and is part of the broader Clean 21 manufacturing industry strategy.

Innovation Minister Senator Kim Carr said the Government believes clean technology is the way forward for manufacturing.

Industry would be supported in developing and applying those technologies, he said.

“Enterprise Connect has conducted Business Reviews for more than 3000 firms and  energy, water and waste efficiency are part of those reviews, The Clean 21 Technology Innovation Network will provide even more specific and specialised support on clean technology issues,” Senator Carr said.

“For example, electricity use might be identified as a major sustainability opportunity for a business during a Business Review.

“The Network could then link the business into the Commonwealth’s Smart Grid, Smart City Project, where it would receive one-on-one advice from Energy Australia on its electricity use and reduction opportunities.

“We will make better use of existing expertise regardless of where it exists, in our mission to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint and costs while making them more sustainable and profitable,” Senator Carr said.

The Clean 21 Network is attached to the Clean Technology Innovation Centre in Newcastle.
