Energy and Environment

With the global climate crisis, we face the prospect of frequent natural disasters and widespread resource shortages. As a result the energy and environment sector is rapidly evolving to address the emerging challenges we all face.

Paper Giant believes deeply in tackling these challenges and we’ve supported energy and environmental organisations of all sizes to innovate, collaborate and plan for a better future for all.

Featured case study


Australian Energy Market Operator

Enabling innovation in the Australian energy sector through systems design

The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) engaged Paper Giant to identify barriers in the energy sector that prevent start-ups, emerging and existing businesses from developing competitive products and services using consumer energy data.

Our approach


Paper Giant uses systems thinking and innovation practices to support emerging markets and services across the energy and enviroment sector.

We work collaboratively with organisations to understand their context and map the other key players operating in the energy and environment sector. We draw on innovative practices to identify opportunities, design creative solutions and consider the energy system as a whole.
