Definitions

Subdivision 660000 - Energy Supply, covers R&D directed towards renewable energy, energy production and supply, energy transformation, energy distribution and the conservation or efficient use of energy in the form of derived fuels such as petroleum products, electricity, town gas, coke and briquettes and in the form of heat energy.

It includes R&D directed towards 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from the supply of energy or towards protection of the production site. This subdivision has six groups:

    660100 - Energy Transformation
    660200 - Renewable Energy
    660300 - Energy Storage and Distribution
    660400 - Conservation and Efficiency
    660500 - Prevention and Treatment of Pollution
    669900 - Other

    Exclusions:


      R&D directed towards the commercial provision of electricity, gas and water services and utilities is included in Subdivision 710000 Commercial Services and Tourism, Group 710100 Electricity, Gas and Water Services and Utilities.

      Group 660100 - Energy Transformation

      This group covers R&D directed towards the transformation of energy resource minerals such as coal, uranium, oil and gas into heat, steam or electricity; and the conversion of coal, natural gas, oil shale and tar sands to liquid fuels. This group has eight classes:


        660101 - Coal - electricity
        660102 - Coal - conversion to liquid fuels
        660103 - Coal - other purposes
        660104 - Nuclear
        660105 - Refined oil and gas
        660106 - Gas - conversion to liquid fuels
        660107 - Oil shale and tar sands - conversion to liquid fuels
        660199 - Energy transformation not elsewhere classified

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from energy transformation or towards protection of the production site is included in Group 660500 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 660200 - Renewable Energy

      This group covers R&D directed towards improving the generation and supply of renewable energy including hydro-electric energy, wind, ocean, geothermal, solar-thermal, solar-photoelectric, solar-thermal electric biomass and other forms of renewable energy. This group has seven classes:


        660201 - Hydro-electric
        660202 - Wind
        660203 - Ocean
        660204 - Solar-thermal
        660205 - Solar-photoelectric
        660206 - Solar-thermal electric
        660299 - Renewable energy not elsewhere classified (e.g. geothermal)

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards protection of the production site is included in Group 660500 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 660300 - Energy Storage and Distribution

      This group covers R&D directed towards improving energy distribution including electricity transmission, gas distribution and other forms of energy distribution (incl. distribution of manufactured gas through systems of mains).

      This group includes R&D directed towards energy storage and energy systems analysis. This group has five classes:


        660301 - Electricity transmission
        660302 - Gas distribution
        660303 - Energy storage
        660304 - Energy systems analysis
        660399 - Energy distribution not elsewhere classified

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards:

          (a) 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from energy storage and distribution or towards protection of the production site is included in Group 660500 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution; and

          (b) the provision and management of services, such as electricity, gas and water services and utilities to commercial and residential premises is included in Group 710100 Electricity, Gas and Water Services and Utilities.
      Group 660400 - Conservation and Efficiency

      This group covers R&D directed towards the conservation and efficient use of energy in industry, transport, commerce and households. This group has four classes:


        660401 - Industry
        660402 - Residential and commercial
        660403 - Transport
        660499 - Other
      Group 660500 - Prevention and Treatment of Pollution

      This group covers R&D directed towards 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from the supply of energy or towards protection of the production site. This group has four classes:


        660501 - Energy transformation
        660502 - Renewable energy
        660503 - Energy storage and distribution
        660504 - Conservation and efficiency
      Group 669900 - Other

      This group covers R&D in energy supply which is not classified elsewhere (e.g. safety). This group has the one Class:


        669999 - Other
