Patrick is a PhD researcher at the University of Technology, Sydney and Director of Sustainable Business Pty Ltd, a management consultancy that he founded in 1997. He has partnered with corporate and government clients on projects that span corporate climate change strategy, energy efficiency training and education and energy efficiency policy development. Key projects include advising on the development and implementation of the Australian Energy Efficiency Opportunities Act (2006), developing a stakeholder engagement strategy to support the introduction of national energy management legislation in Mongolia, and developing content for the Advanced Energy Performance Certificate Program at the City University of New York. Patrick was an expert reviewer and case study author for the International Energy Agency's recently published Policy Pathway on Energy Management Programmes for Industry. In this seminar Patrick will present the findings from his recently submitted PhD research which examines the strategies and practices that leading businesses in Australia have developed to accelerate energy efficiency improvement between 2006 and 2012. The findings from Patrick's research provide important insights into the actions that policy makers and practitioners can take to accelerate the adoption of effective energy management systems and practices in organisations.
