The 4Ds Transforming the Future of Energy

  • Decarbonisation: Renewable energy, e-Mobility, energy efficiency, new and future fuels, demand side management
  • Decentralisation: Distributed generation, energy storage, microgrids, prosumers, Virtual Power Plants (VPPs), P2P, Vechicle-to-Grid (V2G)
  • Digitalisation: Digital technologies to provide infrastructure  for more flexible, inteligent, connected and responsive energy systems
  • Democratisation:  Shift from central corporate ownership to community owned energy assets supporting local economic and social benefits
Net Zero Journey - Net Zero Roadmap

Net Zero Journey

There is irreversible momentum towards Net Zero emissions due to the fact that Net Zero targets have been established as a global standard by Governments, including Australia; Investors and Boards challenging status quo; and there has been a significant increase in demand from communities for accelrated action on climate change.

As a result, an increasing number of organisations have adopted Net Zero ambitions and started the journey towards Net Zero.

Achieving targets takes time and investment. And not all organisations have the resources and capability to transition towards Net Zero on their own.

Through an Energy as a Service (EaaS) partnership with 3E Group, we can support you at every stage of the journey until your targets have been achieved.

  1. Commit to strategic goals
  2. Establish baseline
  3. Build the roadmap with interim targets
  4. Reduce consumption & emissions
  5. Produce then procure green renewable energy
  6. Measure, Track & Analyse
  7. Balance residual emissions with removals
  8. Verify & Certify

Accelerating Net Zero

In order to accelerate the transition to Net Zero and ensure targets are achieved in a timely and cost-effective way, there needs to be a new mindset and approach when it comes to the procurement pathway or models.

There are distinct disadvantages and handicaps in using ‘old’, traditional procurement methods in an attempt to achieve Net Zero targets.

Achieving Net Zero requires a customer-centric, outcomes-based and intergrated approach with access to capital, capability and expertise – typically not found in traditional procurement models and only through Energy as a Service (EaaS).
