What our Clients Say

Denis and I first worked together in the conduct of an Operations Review for an EPC contractor in the heavy engineering field.  From the outset Denis demonstrated his ability to identify and weight the critical commercial and technical factors that define success. That ability is complemented by independence of thought at a high level, something that has made a Denis a welcome resource when I want to explore any new topic from first principles. Small wonder that after more than a decade I continue to enjoy our collaboration.

Denis has provided advisory services to AJBush for more than 15 years, initially verifying our Greenhouse Challenge program and later assisting with National Greenhouse and Energy reporting, Emissions Reduction projects and the Carbon tax.  Also, he has provided specialist modelling expertise to assist us qualifying for Commonwealth funding for a major plant upgrade to reduce emissions and improve energy efficiency.  Denis has provided AJ Bush with similar assistance with energy efficiency improvement modelling with later verification for new equipment to satisfy the NSW Dept Planning and Environment.   I have found Denis to be extremely knowledgeable and professional in the sector and has a commercial understanding of the impacts of these programs on a business.
