Energy Conservation Keeps its Cups

Good taste was the winner this week as Energy Conservation received its very own branded KeepCups. We agreed that carrying a KeepCup signified our intention of the world we want to live in, and decided it was important that we visibly represent those values as an organisation. Plus, disposable cups are rubbish!

We have also partnered with our local café, Ministry of Coffee to provide a cup library service for our office. Now, in addition to the cups we keep in our office to take down for a coffee, the café keeps a supply of clean cups for our staff to use when purchasing a coffee on their way into work. We keep them supplied with clean cups, and they have benefited from a boost in our custom.

We recognise that the many small acts of using these cups when buying our morning coffee will compound over time, making a worthwhile reduction to our collective waste footprint.
We hope that through our actions, we might inspire others to do the same!

In the words of celebrated cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world…
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

Energy Conservation goes a fair way

Always willing go the whole nine yards in support of our clients, our energetic team took to the lynx this September for the 2018 golf challenge. With engineers on hand to share their power saving expertise, Energy Conservation made a connection with installers and electricians at the coalface of the industry who otherwise might not be aware of the NSW Energy Savings Scheme. As it turned out, we found we were able to create rewards for golfing efficiency just as we do for energy savings!


Presenting Ben

Our intrepid Senior Project Manager Ben Champion was recently photographed in his natural habitat delivering an energy efficiency workshop. On this occasion, a valuable training session followed by breakfast bbq helped a group of switched-on electricians keen to become effective service providers under the NSW Energy Savings Scheme and win those efficiency upgrade projects. An informative and enjoyable time was had by all!

Energy Conservation goes (to the) green

A great day was had by all last Wednesday at the Facility Management Association of Australia Golf Day. Energy Conservation sponsored the 8th hole and raised money for the Kids' Cancer Project. Our team member Jessica braved the elements to bring a smile to the players' faces with her marshmallow game! Big thanks to everyone involved.

EC supplies to Procurement Australia

Energy Conservation recently became an approved supplier of energy efficiency services to members of Procurement Australia, one of Australia’s largest buying groups with over 700 member businesses across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Their well-governed tender processes connect their members to industry best practice services, delivering the best results and saving them time & money in procurement.

Energy Conservation completes ISO 50001

During a recent trip to Singapore, Energy Conservation engineers Jens Mozer and Maximilian Brownstein attended and passed the Lead Auditor training course for ISO 50001 (Energy Management Systems). Based on the management system model of continuous improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001, this standard makes it easier for organisations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management. Congratulations to Max and Jens, who alongside their exisiting accreditations are now qualified to conduct audits according to this respected international standard.
