Efficiency Insight - April 2022
Efficiency Insight is the Energy Efficiency Council's quarterly energy management update for members, partners and stakeholders.
The countdown is on – only four weeks until our sector comes together for the first time in over two years for the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2022.
It's going to be so good to see you all in Melbourne, and there is so much to discuss. The embrace of net zero over the last couple of years has changed the game. As businesses set ever more ambitious emissions reduction targets, energy management has come into its own as a cost effective tool for immediate emissions reduction. And the value of the demand side in the journey to net zero is coming into focus like never before; as we transition to a 21st century economy powered by renewables, there is no pathway to net zero that doesn't include smart energy management as a central pillar.
As always the Conference is your opportunity to catch up on the latest thinking on all that and more. Details are below, including the full program, or you can register here.
Catch you very soon!

Energy Efficiency Council Head of Policy, Rob Murray-Leach, distils the latest policy news from the start of 2022.
We appreciate the commitment of all of our members to our vision: we thank our existing members for their ongoing support and welcome new members to the EEC.
The EEC Professional Certifications Framework, which will promote the effective delivery of energy services, will be launched in June 2022.
We have come a long way in the last couple of centuries, having traversed four industrial revolutions. As illustrated by ABB, with advanced digital innovation, consumers and businesses have experienced profound changes and are now at the centre.
Data centres are large energy users and with the global community committed to achieving net zero, each country will need to get its head out of the clouds – and into the cloud – to reduce its data centre-related emissions.
In this quarter's Efficiency Leaders we are profiling Founder & Managing Director of Websters Group, Ryan Dillon. Ryan was elected to the EEC Board in November 2021.
