Net zero emissions: pathways and opportunities

Collaborating with CSIRO on national mission: Sustainable energy and resources

Achieving net zero emissions by 2050 is critical in limiting global average temperature increases.

Energetics has deep expertise in creating emissions reduction strategies for large, complex, multi-state businesses. We identify opportunities and develop customised tools that consider factors such as business, sector and economic growth forecasts and the rate of decarbonisation of Australia’s electricity grid.

We support decision-makers to understand how a net zero ambition fits into the overall business strategy.

Energetics’ services for net-zero pathways include:

  • Identifying reduction pathways from an emissions footprint
  • Forecasting emissions trajectories against Paris objectives
  • Implementation of reduction opportunities, with corporate renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) forming the largest single opportunity to reduce emissions. PPAs at 100% of load also support a RE100 (100% renewable) target.

Energetics’ approach draws on our expertise in strategy, markets, procurement and technology to provide clients with the experience required to understand the potential and implications of a transition to net-zero emissions. Energy cost projections can include forecasts for retail energy costs, network charges, environmental charges and renewable energy certificates, if applicable.

As part of our strategy development we create a work program which leverages the expertise of the Energetics team and is sequenced in a manner which will enable the work to be completed efficiently. Our teams work collaboratively to develop insights based on understanding our clients’ systems and our deep technical and commercial expertise in energy management and renewable energy.
