Contents >> Socio-economic Objective >> DIVISION 85 ENERGY

This division covers R&D directed towards energy resources and the supply of energy.
It includes:

  • exploration, mining, extraction, preparation and supply of energy mineral resources;
  • energy production, transformation, storage, distribution and supply;
  • efficient use and conservation of energy; and
  • environmental sustainability of energy activities.
This division has nine groups.
    8501 Energy Exploration
    8502 Mining and Extraction of Energy Resources
    8503 Preparation and Production of Energy Sources
    8504 Energy Transformation
    8505 Renewable Energy
    8506 Energy Storage, Distribution and Supply
    8507 Energy Conservation and Efficiency
    8598 Environmentally Sustainable Energy Activities
    8599 Other Energy

    Exclusions:
    a) The characteristics, propagation, growing and harvesting of crops for use as biomass or conversion to biofuels is included in Division 82 Plant Production and Plant Primary Products.
    b) Production of non-energy mineral resources is included in Division 84 Mineral Resources (excl. Energy Resources).
    c) Manufacture of processed products from energy mineral resources (e.g. lubricants, plastics, synthetic resins and paints) is included in Division 86 Manufacturing.
    d) Design of buildings to minimise energy consumption in the finished building is included in Group 8702 Construction Design.
    e) Distribution of non-energy products, other than water, through pipelines is included in Group 8899 Other Transport.
