Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Coal Corporation of Victoria, a body corporate, was established under the State Electricity Commission (Coal Corporation of Victoria) Act 1984, No. 10145.

The objectives of the Corporation were defined in the Act, Part II, 69. (1)(5).

The main objectives were:

to develop and promote efficient uses for brown coal and brown coal products other than electricity including the use of brown coal and brown coal products in substitution for the use of less plentiful resources;

to minimise any adverse environmental effects and energy conservation goals in the course of its activities;

to increase Victorian involvement in the development and understanding of technologies relevant to brown coal; and

to provide a safe working environment and to develop employment opportunities.

A six-member Board of Management to be known as the Coal Corporation of Victoria Board was also established by the Act.

The Victorian Brown Coal Council was abolished under Part III of the Act.

By December 1993 most of the staff of Coal Corporation of Victoria had transferred to the newly formed Energy Brix Australia Corporation. The merger of the Coal Corporation of Victoria with the newly-privatised Herman Research Laboratory was also being considered (VPRS 9290/P1, Minutes, Agenda and Papers for the Board meeting 13 December 1993). This merger was subsequently undertaken.
