The Green Wave: Anchoring economic recovery through Net Zero Energy Strategy

Purpose of project

This project looks at net zero energy and emission commitments in three university precincts – Curtin, Monash, and UTS. These institutes will leverage their campuses and unique research and innovation capabilities to reduce emissions. They want to establish a roadmap for identifying multiple net zero opportunities that can be employed at scale. This will help to reduce the confusion in industries and the broader community about the net zero energy and emission strategies and commitments of numerous large corporations and government agencies.

Impact of project

Lay foundations for collaborative decarbonisation solutions that build legitimacy and provide examples of how deep stakeholder engagement can improve planning processes and lead to better investment decisions.
