As the impacts of climate change worsen and put Australia’s energy future under the microscope, renewables are set to play a significant part in the country’s pathway to a low-emissions future. Utility has collated Australia’s most ambitious renewable projects across batteries, bioenergy, solar, wind and hydro, to reveal how the country is making the most of its abundant resources.
The circular economy refers to the transition away from the current linear model of ‘take, make and dispose’ towards one that uses resources efficiently and repurposes what was previously regarded as waste. Here, we explore the role of utilities in moving from business models that prioritise resource drain to ones that value resource gain.
