CAT Projects specialises in remote area project management, energy and power system engineering, and community and stakeholder engagement, with all our work informed by our shareholders 30 year heritage of working to support livelihoods of remote Aboriginal communities. This provides us with a unique appreciation of the relationship between people, place and technology. We very consciously recognise however that technology and its role in people’s lives is not static; and consequently CAT Projects also engages in significant research and thinking around our areas of expertise, specifically considering new ways of providing people with energy services and the benefits that can accrue from that. The papers, publications and presentations below constitute part of this work.
