Some of the world leading programs delivered by the team include developing a new bulk procurement model for renewable energy in partnership with major institutions and businesses, the 1200 Buildings and the associated Environmental Upgrade Agreements, and Smart Blocks, a new national energy efficiency program targeting strata buildings.
