Making innovation a reality means forging new paths. You can build on our experience so that your journey delivers the outcomes you need.  Below are some of the journeys we have made so far.  Hopefully we will be able to accompany you on your journey to make innovation your reality. 

Water Pumping System ESPC Development

Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC) can support capital investment in energy intensive infrastructure. Demonstrating this business model in developing countries could open significant capital flows to enhance the delivery of essential services, reduce operating costs and support a just energy transition. 

Working with Resource Mobilization Advisors BrAle developed the engineering elementsof a Request for Proposal for an ESPC for El Salvador’s national water utility Administración Nacional de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (ANDA). The project delivered the Preliminary Energy Assessment for the 20 water pumping stations  and extrapolating their results across ANDA’s national network of 546 pumping stations. Potential investment of almost US$82 million were identified.

Organics & Aquaculture Sustainable Industrial Symbiosis 

Organics & Aquaculture Sustainable Industrial Symbiosis (OASIS) uses a unique combination of established technologies to divert separated food waste from landfill while producing valuable products for both human and animal consumption. This project is supported by the Recycling Victoria Research and Development Fund – Organics. The Fund is delivered by Sustainability Victoria under the Victorian Government’s circular economy plan, Recycling Victoria: a new economy.

Regulating High Performance Vehicles in Uruguay

The Ministry of Transport & Public Works in Uruguay sought to study the feasibility of designing a sustainable regulation that would allow the introduction and implementation of High-Performance Vehicles (VAD in Spanish). A multinational, multidisciplinary team combined practical experience of the introduction of High-Performance Vehicles with Performance Based Design Standards and line model comparative analysis on bridge infrastructure to develop a regulation that accounted for the country's road reality both in terms of safety and infrastructure. The new regulations place Uruguay at the forefront of Road Heavy Vehicle legislation in the region.

Bottom-up Internal Carbon Price Development

Satisfying ambitious net-zero targets necessitates a bottom-up approach to ensure practical measures can navigate an organisations Capital Expenditure processes. Identified efficiency and decarbonization projects are essential elements to developing financial supports such as internal carbon prices. One of the world's preeminent designers and manufacturers of commercial and work-related furniture products used the results of energy assessments to ISO 50002:2014 to set its internal carbon prices so that sufficient projects would satisfy the company’s financial hurdles and meet its stated carbon goals. Cost effective savings of over US$250 000 were identified well as well as the quantification of 60 efficiency and decarbonization opportunities.

Capacity Building for High Performance Vehicles

Technology is only as good as the people who use it. As part of the introduction of B-Doubles the government of the Province of San Luis created the School of B-Double Driving, (EMaBi in Spanish) to develop drivers' capabilities. The course included both practical and theoretical elements with modules on safety features, defensive driving, as well as fatigue management and legislation. BrAle Consulting was responsible for the development of the course content and delivery.

Supply Chain Energy Management Capacity Building

Developing energy management capabilities within an organization’s supply chain is essential if its Scope 3 carbon emissions are to be effectively addressed. Smaller organizations may not be aware of the size of the opportunities nor have the skills to realize them. A proactive contract manufacturer in the Asia Pacific region was able to identify US$2 million in annual savings at just 15 members of its 4 500 site network while building the capacity of its supply chain members to identify further savings.
