Summary: This proposal seeks to drive the uptake of existing technologies that reduce energy consumption for businesses leading to reduced costs and improved competitiveness. The proposal delivers research and analysis to support the development of Australia’s ‘energy service’ market. The focus of this research is to increase our understanding of market offerings for ‘decarbonisation’ and ‘energy performance’ as services that businesses provide, which is currently a very limited market in Australia.
