Themes

Theme 1: Digitalising industry

This theme investigates how data-driven insights and connectivity can unlock value-added services and personalised products for customers. Real-time analytics that improve decision-making for businesses will be developed, driven by circular economy practices to improve productivity and reduce emissions. Understanding the role of machine-human interfaces and equipping the workforce with the necessary digital skills will be critical in developing socially acceptable solutions. Delivering trusted and consistent sources of information and decision-making tools will ensure that solutions scale at a pace required to decarbonise the economy.

Theme 2: Decarbonising businesses and supply chains

This theme will develop ground-breaking business models required to implement and scale energy efficient solutions in new and existing businesses. It will have a strong focus on activities in HVAC, fuel substitution, renewable integration, flexible operation and innovative
building materials. Actions will be explored for individual businesses and those operating in shared-service communities, such as net zero precincts. Big-data analytics to monitor building performance, identify and track energy-saving opportunities and maximised services will be delivered. Awareness campaigns will help scale outcomes across a diverse set of stakeholders.
