Carbon reduction strategy and cost
Carbon mitigation pathways for infrastructure
Edge was commissioned to undertake analysis on behalf of South Australia’s Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) to understand the emissions reductions potential across future infrastructure projects. The project included research covering both Australia and leading proponents overseas to identify abatement opportunities, and the development of a comprehensive baseline/business as usual pathway for South Australia’s infrastructure sector. The analysis included a hotspot analysis, GHG modelling and a cost assessment. Carbon mitigation pathways were prepared for several infrastructure archetypes, to support DPTI in developing relevant and cost-effective project sustainability requirements.
