We understand the move to establish reliable sources of decentralised energy in commercial and industrial sectors has never been more critical.
We support global clients in their transition to a decentralised and decarbonised energy future by first understanding their commercial circumstances and ensuring the right mix of distributed energy assets are being considered to meet their needs.
Throughout our team’s 15+ year history, we have provided clients with tailored funding solutions enabling them to transition to a decentralised energy model without the upfront cost often associated with commercial infrastructure projects.
The increasing instances of extreme weather, the growth renewables and other forms of intermittent power supply require additional reliability assets for grid operators and grid independence assets for commercial and industrial power consumers.

Supporting an Australian listed client, Macquarie designed a Power Purchase Agreement to install and manage solar systems on a number of retail shopping centres across Australia.
The solar systems have achieved our client’s objectives of increasing electricity supply from renewable resources, achieving emission reduction targets and significantly reducing overall electricity costs.
An example of the benefits from one shopping centre can be seem below:
|Solar system size||0||544 kW|
|Annual electricity bill||$A422,000||$A303,000|
|Annual CO2 emissions avoided||0||535 t CO2|
|Equivalent to number of cars taken off the roads*||0||195|
*Based on average emissions of a new light vehicle sold in Australia in 2018
At Macquarie, we take a holistic view of the transition to a greener economy. Our Macquarie Energy, Renewables and Sustainability team leverages both regional energy expertise and the global experience from across North America, Asia and Australia.
