SA Power Networks

SA Power Networks is the principal electricity distribution network service provider in South Australia – the poles and wires that deliver the power to homes and businesses. Every five years, SA Power Networks is required to undergo a regulatory reset process. We designed and delivered their People’s Panel.

Motor Accident Injury Insurance

All cars on Australian roads must have compulsory insurance (CTP). In the ACT, this insurance was expensive, coverage limited, and most claims needed to be settled in the courts. The government engaged us to help them deliver a citizens jury – which resulted in legislative change to the scheme.

Resilience Planning

During 2022 we worked with Regional Development Australia Murraylands & Roverland to deliver a region-wide engagement process with the community – to prepare the Regions’ plan for resilience.
