More than 50 companies are calling for a rapid deployment of clean energy technologies to build a prosperous zero-emission Australia. In fact, they are already getting to work.
Supporters include cleantech developers and companies that already assemble or manufacture wind turbines, lithium-ion batteries, solar panels, thermal storage, electric buses and onshore utility vehicles in Australia.
From household names like Toshiba and Schneider Electric to small companies looking to grow like Fonz, Allegro and Reclaim Energy, these companies are putting their collective weight behind efforts to rapidly reduce Australia’s emissions and take advantage of new markets. that it creates.
This group has coalesced behind the recommendations of the think tank, Beyond Zero Emissions’ latest report, Deploy, which demonstrates that an 81% reduction in emissions by 2030 is possible using technology we already know. Six key technologies will do the heavy lifting, but we need to accelerate the speed with which we deploy them.
Recently, 26 of the 51 companies that joined this initiative were presented by Beyond Zero Emissions at COP27.
For example, solar panels will require a relatively modest doubling of the current deployment rate, but for others we will accelerate almost from a standing start. To electrify our transport systems, electric vehicles will need to be deployed 14 times faster than they are today – Sweden has done this – by accelerating its EV deployment by 17 times over six years to 2021 and we can too.
“This challenge is a huge opportunity for Australian households and businesses.” said BZE CEO Heidi Lee.
“Examples overseas have shown us that it is entirely possible to increase deployment rates at these levels, aligning government and finance with businesses that are set to scale and deliver.
“Right now, the pressures of the cost of living make it more important than ever that we prepare our homes and businesses to be powered by affordable and reliable renewable energy.
“We can put ourselves in place now to avoid future price shocks and buy Australian Made – supporting Australian workers and communities at a time when they need it most.
“Integration of energy and process automation enables manufacturers to drive sustainability at the world’s most energy-intensive sites, while software connects assets across the lifecycle, providing insight single in real time.
In industry, automation and digital tools are optimizing the processes, productivity, performance and energy consumption needed to deliver machinery, semiconductor chips or even a modest milk carton. In cities, buildings and infrastructure, IoT-enabled management systems can significantly reduce energy consumption and waste in real time. Importantly, the best driver for energy efficiency and decarbonization is electrification, which is also the easiest route to fast and efficient results,” said Gareth O’Reilly, president of the Pacific region of Schneider Electric.
“We have been manufacturing heat pumps in Australia for 18 years, and we need to install a heat pump in every home to help Australian families lower their bills” said Chris Taylor, managing director of Reclaim Energy, which won the prestigious Future Energy Industry Leader Award at the Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Awards, 2022.
“Custom Denning is investing in the future of mobility with the development of all-new electric buses designed, manufactured and assembled in Australia. We see significant opportunities in the clean energy sector and we will continue to innovate to drive the growth of zero emissions transportation. Rapid deployment will allow us to realize opportunities sooner and reduce emissions faster. » said Scott Dunn, managing director of electric bus manufacturer, Custom Denning.
