"There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer: energy leaders around the world are faced with the challenge of finding a balance between sustainability, affordability and reliability of supply."

Helping the energy sector to reduce carbon emissions and respond to environmental legislation

Energy consumption is responsible for 75 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions, 45 per cent of which originate in fossil-based power generation and are a major contributor to climate change. In response, governments around the world are implementing environmental legislation with the aim of improving energy efficiency and meeting carbon emissions reduction targets in power supply.

Renewable energy is key to achieve carbon reduction targets, but remains more expensive than generation from fossil fuels such as gas and coal. Climate change regulations and environmental legislation also impact energy markets and energy prices differently from country to country, even state to state (in the US). This means there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer: energy leaders around the world are faced with the challenge of finding a balance between green compliance, affordability and reliability of supply.

PA works with energy leaders and heavy users of energy across the supply chain to create growth from green power through technology, investment and regulation.

We help clients:

  • navigate policy – working with policy makers to develop environmental regulations, and helping clients understand the financial, market and environmental governance frameworks that impact their organisation
  • foster technology innovation – creating green technology roadmaps and helping clients take new products from concept to market and drive profits from green compliance
  • evaluate infrastructure – advising on the delivery of green energy, helping businesses use energy more efficiently through strategic asset planning
  • improve performance – identifying best practice and implementing measures to reduce costs from renewable power generation in manufacturing, installation, maintenance and operations.

PA’s experience includes:

  • providing a green compliance strategy for Hawaiian Electric to reduce carbon emissions from its generation arm and meet carbon reduction targets
  • improving the performance of Malaysia’s energy sector
  • positioning UKPN as a leading distributor in the transition to a low-carbon economy
  • providing Energy Investors Funds with expert analysis to support a US landfill gas investment
