A2EP Training: Decarbonisation Technologies 101

A2EP are now accepting bookings for the first sessions of their one-day Decarbonisation Technologies 101 training which covers the fundamentals of energy productivity and decarbonisation technologies. Map the business case and explore practical approaches to implementation.

Sept enrgy

The question is no longer whether to decarbonise, but rather how to decarbonise; how to accelerate the transition to net zero. Many Australian businesses have committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and/or interim targets. The rationale for decarbonisation might vary between organisations but the concepts, approaches and technologies are consistent.

This one-day program covers the fundamentals of energy productivity and decarbonisation technology. It maps the business case and explores practical approaches to implementation.

Who should attend?

The course is primarily designed for those new to the world of net zero, decarbonisation and energy productivity.

  • junior engineering and environmental science graduates working with manufacturing, equipment supply and energy advisory/consulting firms
  • government officials who work with energy and decarbonisation seeking to get a deeper understanding of how business is working with decarbonisation
  • accountants, marketing, communications and other professionals wishing to understand the challenges, opportunities and solutions of decarbonisation

What you can expect

  • Networking for strength - a community of peers
  • Why decarbonise? The context for net zero.
  • Unpack key terms, acronyms and concepts.
  • Measurement: How to track and report change
  • Identify opportunities. We have the technology.
  • Incentives to decarbonise: Financial, productivity. Assistance: Grants, loans, certificates.
  • Pitching decarbonisation projects: Using non-energy benefits in the business case

After the course you will:

  • Know the key parts in assessing an emissions footprint
  • Know options for monitoring and reporting systems
  • Have an awareness of the technologies that can be deployed for decarbonising electricity and gas usage
  • Know how to account for a wide range of benefits: Decarbonisation plus
  • Be able to build and communicate a business case for investment
