    DC PRO Plays Leading Role in Australia’s Green Future

    DC PRO Engineering, the UAE-based Engineering Consultancy firm, has expanded its operations and opened two offices in Australia to service the growing demand from businesses and entities across the country for a push towards renewable energy. Renewables are earmarked as a key driver in Australia’s energy future as the country transitions away from fossil fuels to cleaner, greener energy in line with its commitment to cut carbon emissions under the terms of the Paris Agreement signed by almost all the world’s countries in 2015 to tackle climate change. New research from the Australia Institute suggests that the best way for the country to meet its goal of reducing emissions by as much as 28 per cent is to ensure 66 per cent of its energy comes from renewable sources by 2030. The company’s offices in Perth, Western Australia and Melbourne, Victoria, will work with public and private entities spanning the east west electricity grids, to adapt latest technological innovations and new approaches to meet energy distribution, generation and storage to meet the needs of Australian consumers. George Berbari, CEO of DC PRO Engineering, explained: “Renewables are on the way to becoming the dominant source of energy across the globe. Governments are now aware that global warming is a real threat and are now focusing on sustainability. The Australian government has pledged to cut its greenhouse gas emissions significantly by 2030, and DC PRO Engineering identified a way in which we could contribute to this vision that embodies our approach. “Australia is just one of many territories where we have identified growth opportunities, but the main reason the company has opened offices in Australia is to be part of the country’s green vision and journey and to share our expertise. “District energy technologies will play an increasingly important role in energy storage and conservation given the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, and this is one area where the company will excel. Marcus Wearing-Smith, representative of DC PRO Australia, said: “District energy systems are being considered as a necessary component of Australia’s energy future. The emergence of Renewable Energy Micro Grids is essential to cater for the geographically disparate energy profile of the Australian continent. Traditional electricity grids are failing.  The company’s experience is directly aligned with the new energy regime emerging in Australia. “

    The company has the in-depth knowledge and experience of energy efficiency precinct and district systems combined with an exceptional understanding of enhanced HVAC systems applied to cooling dominant environments. DC PRO’s integration of ultra-high efficiency, small to large-scale energy solutions, coupled with renewable energy systems, places DC PRO in a unique position to contribute to the mix of energy solutions demanded by Federal and State governments in Australia. “Through its Australian offices, DC PRO Engineering will focus on the introduction of medium to large scale precinct and district energy systems in the Australian energy landscape, with a focus on integrated energy systems incorporating thermal energy storage combined with enhanced integrated renewable energy systems. The firm will offer both mechanical and electrical engineering services and assist in achieving global best practices in energy efficiency performance. Direct Energy Australia, an established engineering firms that offer services to government and private enterprises, will partner with the company on office coordination and client liaison. Direct Energy Australia’s has an engineering team with expertise in renewable energy, electrical & controls, electrical, mechanical, as well as a forward-thinking geothermal designer, which will facilitate client relations for the company.
