Carbon Management and Compliance
Energy use and climate change is now a matter of critical importance for all businesses in Australia in the battle to remain competitive whilst mitigating business risks and liabilities due to increasing supply chain costs.
Whilst significant financial gains can often be made by focusing on energy efficiency alone, incorporating and gaining acceptance of this new business dimension and changing corporate culture typically represents a significant challenge for many organisations.
Preston Energy has substantial experience working with boards and management to develop and implement effective strategic energy management solutions which add value to the bottom line.
On the regulatory front, we can assist clients to understand their carbon exposure, the relevance of Clean Energy legislation and how to position the organisation for sustainable success. Preston Energy also has substantial experience in Emissions Intensive Trade Exposed industries.
Our team of specialists work with clients to meet the compliance reporting requirements under:
- Energy Efficiency Opportunities Act 2006 (Cth)
- National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (Cth)
The development of an auditable energy and emissions data capture system simplifies various reporting requirements. In partnership with clients, we will develop processes and procedures for data collection and monitoring.
Our specialists work with clients to minimise costs through engineering design and procurement of certificates/permits in relation to:
- Carbon Pricing Mechanism under Clean Energy Act 2011 (Cth)
- Renewable Energy Target under Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (Cth)
Preston Energy can work with clients to develop an Emissions Inventory Management Plan, first establishing objectives and setting out a framework for measuring and monitoring emissions along with prioritised initiatives for their reduction. This can be fully integrated within existing systems without compromising business goals. We can assist clients to gather data, calculate emissions and report inventory results. Reporting to the National Pollutant Inventory can also be easily included in this process.
