Unlocking the benefits of sustainability and local energy & water

  • Part consultancy, part service delivery, Presync has the skills and professional experience to provide commercially viable strategic and technical advice on sustainability, local energy and water, cleantech as well as climate mitigation and adaptation.
  • If you are a property developer, owner, manager, large tenant or community we can help you make local energy and water infrastructure a reality.
  • If you’re interested in making your organisation more sustainable we can help you connect with the latest thinking and create a strategy, with input from a broad network of experts.

If you are a precinct developer or community we can help you make local energy and water infrastructure a reality.


Smart, synchronised infrastructure can help reduce your costs and achieve your sustainability goals without costing you more. A win for you and a win for our environment.

  • We deliver well-managed projects enriched with deep analysis and commercial acumen. Our network gives us access to a breadth of expertise and range of perspectives and ensures a holistic view of a deeply interconnected future with multiple constraints.
  • We created Presync expressly to help improve the sustainability of the Australian built environment. We are an innovative company formed to advise on, deliver and operate well-integrated local clean energy and water systems. In particular we focus on the inevitable decentralisation and democratisation of energy, starting with optimising the energy performance of the built form.

  • We are small and nimble with deep professional experience in energy, innovation, property development and sustainability. We are dot connectors and systems integrators. We pride ourselves on our good relationships within industry and the sustainability movement in general. 
  • The convergence of emerging technologies and the need for cleaner, cheaper living means that developers and communities are now able to sustain their precincts with affordable local resources.

Strategic Consulting

With proven research and communication skills and strong links to the research community (CSIRO, University of Technology Sydney, University of Sydney, UNSW), Presync is ideally placed to undertake policy and technology research. We provide thorough analysis drawn from conventional desk top work and modelling and add to this through up to the minute conversations with industry participants who are leaders in the commercial, policy, research and investment aspects of the value chain.

Our research projects come with a strong flavour of commercial reality drawn from real-time experience from our projects with the property sector.

Our clients come from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Our professional experience and contacts mean that we provide practical project advice to the property and financial industries and are equally comfortable undertaking research into the latest technology, policy and regulatory aspects of the renewables and clean-tech markets.

In fact, we see a real synergy in this crossover that means our project work benefits from being across the latest technologies and policy context, whilst our strategic consulting work is enriched by up to date commercial acumen in the application of clean-tech solutions.

Our Partners

Presync works with the industry experts best suited to each project; matching the best technical skills and experience to the client need.  As system integrators and dot connectors we bring together a unique team for each project, using Presync resources and our ecosystem of experts.

Presync is technology-agnostic and vendor-agnostic.  We receive no commercial return from suppliers when it comes time to help you select the most appropriate technologies, components and systems.  But by bringing trusted relationships to the table, we ensure that we offer objective, tailored and project-specific advice to best meet your needs.

Our Clients

Our clients come from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Our professional experience and network mean we are equally comfortable providing practical project advice or strategic advice on the latest technology, policy and regulatory aspects of the renewables, infrastructure and cleantech markets.

There are synergies between the two streams of our work; project work benefits from the latest technology and policy context, strategic work is enriched by current experience applying cleantech solutions in the real world.
