Globally, we are at a climate crisis point!
The importance of beginning climate change action immediately cannot be understated. In order to avoid long-term damage to the climate and to the environment, rapid reductions in emissions need to take place before 2030.To achieve the 1.5°C target, scientists estimate that oil and gas production must decline globally by 3 per cent each year until 2050, with most regions reaching peak production by 2030. This will render many operational and planned fossil fuel projects unviable (Nature.com).
A Global Problem
Urgency on climate action to prevent 1.5°C temperature increase.
72% of global carbon emissions come from energy
Energy Transition Challenge
Our energy network isn’t built to fully decarbonise.
Energy users can’t rely on traditional retailers to solve the problem.
At present we have a highly centralised energy market and there is insufficient smart infrastructure in the current energy system to enable the shift to a decentralised energy market. It’s not as simple as just turning the switch. We need a system that allows for a sensible but accelerated transition. The market has changed. Energy prices in the last decade have been at an all time high and energy procurement is no longer a simple process. Also, the big energy retailers happen to own much of the coal and natural gas fired power plants still in operation and they won’t just shut these down.
WHAT IS A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY COMMITMENT?
A commitment for energy users, supported by a leading-edge methodology that facilitates transition to a sustainable energy future by 2030
Take a closer look at the Maximum Energy Sustainable Energy Commitment pathway
Maximum Energy partner with businesses to help them transition to a sustainable energy future
Maximum Energy has developed a sustainable energy commitment (SEC) pathway to accelerate organisations with the uptake of renewable energy and decarbonisation of the energy grid. This pathway guides organisations to make commitments to clearly defined targets that align with global climate change agreements.
