The Resources and Energy Sector Infrastructure Council (RESIC, 2007–2013) was established to provide an advisory and coordination role to the South Australian government and private sector on complex resources and energy infrastructure matters by:
- Creating a close working relationship between the resources sector and government on planning and infrastructure development
- Coordinating the collection of accurate data to support the planning of viable, fit-for-purpose infrastructure
- Working with the resources sector to foster cooperation between companies to maximise the value of infrastructure that is developed in order to minimise its duplication.
In 2011 RESIC initiated the Resource and Energy Infrastructure Demand Study to understand the anticipated demands of the resources and energy industries on existing and new infrastructure.
This study led to the Deloitte Regional Mining and Infrastructure Plan.
A key recommendation from this plan was for the establishment of the Resource Infrastructure Taskforce (RIT).
In 2015 RESIC was merged with the Resources Industry Development Board (RIDB) to form the Minerals and Energy Advisory Council (MEAC).
