Increase the diffusion of existing technologies to increase productivity in the infrastructure sector

Section: 7.4. Accelerating technology use


Increase diffusion of existing technologies through the following steps:

  1. Review approaches to procurement at an agency level and consider whether there are barriers to technology diffusion within current systems and practices.
  2. Develop a technology plan that establishes a clear time-bound mission and actions to increase the diffusion of technology. This should include consideration of all demand-side drivers and barriers to uptake.
  3. Devolve decision-making for technical standard-setting (such as minimum energy performance standards, housing codes, waste and water efficiency) to responsible regulators where there are productivity gains and ensure the standards are reviewed and updated regularly.
