Western Australia has established itself as a global energy centre of excellence.

With some of the world’s biggest LNG developments and the largest concentration of global oil and gas companies in Australia, Western Australia has established itself as a global energy solutions centre of excellence.

WA’s capital city Perth is the only Australian member of the World Energy Cities Partnership and is committed to knowledge sharing and partnerships in energy-related activities, as well as exploring mutually beneficial opportunities in a range of strategic areas, such as energy-related and environmental technologies.

Major mining and energy companies including Chevron, Woodside, Rio Tinto, GE Oil & Gas and Shell have chosen to base major research and development centres in Perth, leveraging off the proximity of major projects and the presence of a skilled and experienced workforce.

Western Australia’s academic sector is also working with government, industry associations and operating companies to address industry challenges and develop advanced technologies and innovative solutions.

With active international PETS and METS sectors Western Australian companies are well recognised throughout Europe for their innovative and high quality energy solutions.  

The WAGO office provides advice and support to companies seeking to develop bi-lateral trade opportunities between Western Australian and UK, European and Israeli companies.
