Solving the Climate Crisis: The Case of Changing Energy Management Practices in Organisations in Australia

November 15, 2013 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Between 2006 and 2011, 320 of Australia’s largest energy consuming organisations implemented 88.8 petajoules of energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 8.21 MtCO2-e. The period over which these savings occurred saw the introduction of national energy efficiency legislation and a carbon tax, rising energy prices and growing interest from organisational stakeholders such as investors and customers regarding the energy performance of organisations. In this seminar Patrick will draw on his PhD research to present an analysis of this complex social setting and the factors that influenced the development and adoption of improved energy management practices within organisations over the period. First he will provide background on energy efficiency policy in Australia. Then he will describe the research methodology including the rationale for developing a multi-level process model based on institutional theory to conduct the study. Finally, Patrick will present the research findings and discuss the implications for the development of government policies that aim to accelerate the adoption of energy management systems and practices in organisations.
