Evergreen Lab

Evergreen Lab was conceived in 2017 with two founders and a big idea: to improve the places we live and play by helping public, private and not for profit organisations make better decisions about infrastructure and the environment.

We are a small team with diverse experience in strategy, engineering, economics and customer engagement. Working together with you, we help turn evidence into action – and good intentions into good outcomes.

– Financial and economic analysis
– Economic regulation
– Supply/demand forecasting
– Investment prioritisation
– Business case development
– Stormwater / flood management

– Program management and project gateway review
– Governance/process review and improvement

  • Cost-benefit analysis of climate change adaptation options
    Undertook a cost-benefit analysis to investigate the economic merits of adaptation options in response to sea level rise (ranging from full protection of the area to managed retreat). The economic, environmental, social and cultural costs and benefits were quantified in dollar terms and the results were outlined within the broader context of the strategic case for change.
  • Financial model and cost-benefit analysis of proposed irrigation scheme
    Developed a probability-based funding model ($ / share for investors) and completed an economic assessment (benefit-cost ratio) of a proposed irrigation scheme in NZ. The model was used to analyse the value-at-risk from key variables such as share purchase, capital costs and increased revenue derived from a change in land use.
  • Scenario planning for National Infrastructure Plan
    Undertook trend analysis and scenario planning to identify the key drivers of change placing pressure on infrastructure in New Zealand over a 30 to 50 year period (relating to population, economy, technology and resources).
  • Urban water sector reform
    Contributed to functions establishment for a new national water utility in Ireland. Established a baseline for the current performance of water services across five main areas (expenditure, revenue, customers, assets and finance) – and quantified high-level efficiency improvement potential. Also contributed to tariff design and the development of an economic regulatory framework.
  • Analysis of an options contract as a policy tool for water trading
    Developed a numerical model to analyse the possibility of using an options contract to enable government entities to obtain rural water in the future in specified quantities at a specified price, without the need to purchase water entitlements from irrigators outright.
  • Stormwater system plan
    Hydraulic modelling, risk assessment and development of a strategic plan to minimise economic, environmental and social impacts of flooding and water quality degradation caused by stormwater runoff in urban areas for a Tasmanian community.
