Happy New Year! Google announced that by the end of 2017 it will be powered 100 percent by renewable energy. Has your organisation set a 2017 goal to extract value from the clean energy economy?
This month in Electricity Rewired, Paul Malcolm explores 2017 clean energy goals any Australian organisation can achieve.
We also celebrate Australia Day this month. Australia abounds in natural renewable resources. In this month’s Local Power column and his first article for the blog, Dennis Foo looks at some of Australia’s renewable energy resources. These resources provide Australia with significant advantages to capitalise on megatrends sweeping ours and the global economy.
New research by EY, in conjunction with the Property Council of Australia and Green Building Council of Australia, identified some of these megatrends for the property sector. They included sustainable cities, the move to carbon zero, and eco-terrorism. Australia’s renewable energy resources place your business perfectly to take advantage of these megatrends in 2017.
Finally, planning ahead, you may be in the middle of or about to commence your budgeting process for the next financial year. In Energy Wise, Paul Brockbank has some food for thought about getting renewables and energy efficiency projects into the mix for FY17/18 budget.
As always – have fun, do good! Clean and renewable energy projects make sense more than ever in 2017 – you’ll do good for your organisation and the world. Here at PAE, we’ll make sure it’s also fun for you. Don’t hesitate to give us a shout anytime, even just to have an exploratory conversation.
