Major Report | 22 July 2020

In our latest Australian Travel Time Metric, developed using Uber’s anonymised ride share data, we see that peak travel times across Australia’s four largest cities have not increased over the past four years.

Putting waste to work: Developing a role for Energy from Waste
Major Report | 16 June 2020

Australian governments have a major opportunity to avoid a looming waste crisis and embrace energy recovery as a way of managing our waste and creating baseload power in the process.

Energy from Waste has been used for decades around the world to divert non-recyclable waste from landfill, reduce emissions, and produce energy, yet Australia has been slow off the mark in harnessing a role for technology. A lack of scale, social licence and impetus for change has meant that Energy from Waste and other forms of advanced waste processing have been underutilised in Australia.

The report outlines a series of key recommendations required to support the roll out of energy recovery facilities and unlock close to $14 billion in private investment by 2030.

Building Trust: Social Licence for Infrastructure
Major Report | 1 June 2020

This report, developed in partnership with L.E.K. Consulting, explores the increasing relevance of social licence across businesses, governments, and institutions. It provides insights into the unique social licence challenges facing the infrastructure sector and outlines a series of key principles that should underpin how infrastructure organisations develop and manage their social licence.

The report highlights that where governments and businesses have adequately developed and maintained their social licence, and earned the trust of the community, they are able to deliver assets and services in a streamlined manner. Good business practices allow organisations to attract and retain customers and provide a robust foundation to garner support from communities for future projects.

Australian Infrastructure Investment Report 2018
Major Report | 24 October 2018

The 2018 Australian Infrastructure Investment Report shows that Australia is still the destination of choice for infrastructure investors, but our hard-won reputation is under material threat. Our research reveals that both international and local investors are alarmed by increasing market intervention, abrupt and recurring regulatory reviews, as well as frequent changes in Australia’s political landscape. Confidence and preparedness to invest in energy assets has taken a hit this year, reflecting the high degree of uncertainty about the direction of our national energy policy.
