The team also offers project consulting services to a large range of commercial, government and community clients on the economic, technical, regulatory and operational aspects of efficient and environmentally effective technology and consumer behaviour.

The Policy and Research team is dedicated to understanding consumer choices, opportunities and risks in the demand side of energy, water and transport markets.

Our objective is to empower our project partners and consumers at all levels to utilise cost-effective, efficient and environmentally sustainable technology as part of the day-to-day management of their households, businesses and communities.
