Energetics won Best Professional Services Firm with revenue <$50M, Best Consulting Engineering Firm with revenue <$50M and Best Value Firm reflecting 30 years of insight, expertise and trusted advice.
It is in the area of "best value" that Energetics feels particularly proud during this period of economic transition and the changing national policy approach to emissions reductions.
As CEO Tony Cooper says, "Australia's largest businesses have dealt with uncertainty for years around carbon policy and more recently, have had to contend with the rapid escalation in energy prices around the country". What has often been seen as a cost and compliance burden requires a strategic approach that can deliver surprising benefits. He continues, "We've supported businesses to achieve significant cost savings, create efficiencies which improve productivity, and enhance their brand and reputation. With a focus on energy and carbon management, a business can achieve a competitive advantage."
As we look to the future, Cooper sees an opportunity to focus on improving energy productivity as a way of reinvigorating Australia's competitiveness. This means government will need to consider how energy is utilised throughout the economy - eg ensuring dollars spent per MWh produce maximum output - and businesses need to focus on driving efficiency to enhance profitability. "This will require new technologies, new approaches and disruptive business models," concludes Cooper.
