EVENT: Workshop for B2 Industry 4.0 for energy productivity opportunity assessment

Tuesday 14 June 2022


Interested industry members were invited to participate in a workshop for RACE for 2030 B2: Industry 4.0 for energy productivity Opportunity Assessment work theme on 14 June 2022.


Industry members were encouraged to hear and provide feedback on the progress of this work group which is investigating and prioritising the potential opportunities of Industry 4.0/IoT to transform manufacturing and improve energy productivity.


During the previous six months, we have built a small group of industry leaders to inform an assessment of opportunities for the development of Industry 4.0 and energy productivity in Australia. This group has worked with academic and other partners to quantify potential, identify pathways and recommend priorities for action. This will set a course for industry-led research, development and demonstration over the next decade.
