Businesses see opportunities to create new value by conserving resources, diversifying energy sources, procuring renewables, and deploying energy management systems and applications. Host Tanya Ott met with Stanley Porter, Vice Chairman and National Industry Leader for Deloitte’s Energy, Resources & Industrials (ER&I) practice and Marlene Motyka, US and Global Renewable Energy Leader—authors of Deloitte’s 2019 Resources Study—to discuss how businesses and consumers are tackling climate change’s challenges and how to reduce carbon footprints.

In this podcast, Marlene Motyka, Deloitte's US and Global Renewable Energy Leader and Bernadette Cullinane, Deloitte’s Australian Oil, Gas and LNG Leader, discuss renewable energy, smart cities, global insights and the diversity of trends that the energy industry is currently seeing.
