A Friday Fling for Energy Conservation

Good humour and good habits abounded last Friday afternoon as the staff at Energy Conservation held a Friday Fling in anticipation of the upcoming Planet Ark National Recycling Week.

Our office may not be large, but we still benefit from a good clean out helped along by a beer and some motivational tunes! By the time we were done we’d filled 5x 12L boxes- that’s 60L collected for recycling and returned to the paper economy. We even separated some soft plastics in the form of old binder sheets and marked the occasion with a new fluorescent tube and battery recycling collection donated to our building.

Congratulations Energy Conservation for a successful Friday Fling!

Energy Conservation carried out a Joint Venture Level 2 Office of Environment & Heritage Energy Saver Audit in conjunction with Julien Freed Consulting (Lighting Design Expert). Measures proposed to value $1.5M with business cases showing 2.6 to 4 years simple payback. Funding Source: Strata Operational and Sinking Funds Budgets. The work was subsidised with an OEH Energy Saver Audit valued at $30,000. The Audit covered all lighting, mechanical services, ventilation & electrical equipment. Business cases were developed for upgrades of lighting, ventilation fans, HVAC, pumping, pool heating, voltage optimization, BMS optimization & power factor correction. Client proceeded immediately with lighting upgrades to be followed by mechanical services upgrades, power factor correction and voltage optimization. Solar PV likely to proceed and Co-Gen may be a future project when the infrastructure for export of thermal energy becomes available in the area. It was of interest to the Client that Sydney Opera House could become a future importer of thermal energy from the Facility when the necessary infrastructure is in place in the area.
