A2EP decarbonisation training coming to Melbourne on Thursday 30 March

We are excited to be returning to Melbourne with our Decarbonisation Methodologies and Technologies training!

This one-day course is designed to help people who are starting their journey to build net zero pathways. Led by industry experts, it will give attendees an understanding of how to reduce reliance on carbon offsets when decarbonising by introducing methodologies and technologies that will first reduce energy usage and then guide economical switching to renewable energy.

The course begins with the basics on emissions, metering and technologies, which attendees are then guided to apply in workshop sessions with the aim of teaching to energy productivity-thinking and to build a better project business case by factoring in non-energy benefits and utilising government programs. This training is suitable for energy and sustainability officers. It is also valuable for finance and marketing staff seeking to understand the opportunities arising from decarbonisation. The course is designed to complement other energy management training and align with requirements for continuing professional development. We will issue a certificate of participation. Participation may qualify for credit to your continuing professional development (CPD) program.

Who should attend? The course is primarily designed for those responsible for energy or decarbonisation that need to understand the building blocks of a decarbonisation pathway. It is also ideal for:

  • engineering and environmental engineers 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 towards net zero

  • finance, marketing, communications and other professionals wishing to understand the challenges, opportunities and solutions of decarbonisation.

What is covered in the course?

  • Understanding emissions and the link with energy usage

  • Key terms, acronyms and concepts explained

  • Measurement: how to track and report change

  • Identifying and prioritising opportunities with technology already available

  • Incentives to decarbonise, including financial and productivity benefits, as well as grants, loans and certificates available.

  • Pitching decarbonisation projects: Using non-energy benefits in the business case

After the course you will:

  • Have established a network of people working within decarbonisation across government, energy users, consultants and technology providers

  • 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, beyond just decarbonisation

  • Be able to build a wholistic business case for a decarbonisation project.
