Rising energy costs and the new price on carbon make improving energy efficiency a top priority.
Identifying and implementing an energy efficiency project will:
- Reduce electricity and gas costs
- Cut carbon emissions
- Reduce exposure to energy price volatility
- Provide a high return-on-investment
Identify opportunities to save energy with an Energy Audit
An energy audit gives you recommendation on how to improve the way your organisation consumes gas and electricity. This includes cost-effective solutions ready for implementation as well as low-cost / no-cost recommendations that deliver huge savings.
Our energy audit team are qualified engineers and among them hold M.Eng, NABERS Assessor and Department of Climate Change (DCC) accreditation.
We can deliver the highest quality AS/NZS 3598:2000 compliant Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 energy audits. All our energy audit reports include fully costed recommendations for implementation.
Following through on an initial energy audits recommendations can be difficult. A lack of experience or uncertainty towards new technologies can translate to lacklustre improvements in energy efficiency. Carbonetix offer a range of project implementation services to ensure you get the greatest benefit from your investment.
Project Management with Guaranteed Savings
With a CarbonetiX engineer at the helm, you can be confident that the project will deliver as promised, we’ll even guarantee your energy cost-savings up-front.
Many of our clients request that an engineer be ‘embedded’ in their organisation for the duration of a project. This solution provides weekly or fortnightly one-on-one contact with a an experienced energy efficiency engineer.
Energy Performance Contract
An EPC is a formal process of guaranteeing the benefits of an energy efficiency project for large energy users. As part of any EPC, Carbonetix will provide the level of energy and cost savings, as well as the cost of implementing the efficiency measures.
Commercial and government organisations know that the return on an energy efficiency project can be as high as 20% p/a. By financing an energy efficiency project, your organisation can significantly reduce operating costs with no up-front expenditure. Further, with guaranteed energy savings you can be sure that the reduced energy cost-savings will cover finance repayments. Our goal is to prepare a project that remains cash-flow neutral and delivers net savings in under three years.
Funding and Grants
As Australia transitions to a low-carbon economy, government at all levels is increasing its support for energy efficiency projects. Our staff can help you find an appropriate incentive scheme and tailor a project proposal to meet all funding criterion.
Commercial Building Ratings — NABERS
NABERS is a star ratings system that assesses the relative energy efficiency of your commercial building. Our NABERS accredited assessors can combine your NABERS rating with an energy audit, giving you detailed advice on low-cost ways to increase your buildings NABERS rating.
Energy Management Plan – EMP
With an Energy Management Plan, you will be on track to achieve the largest energy savings across the whole organisation. The primary purpose of an EMP is to embeds a strategic approach to saving energy and help create a cohesive yearly process for realising these savings.
Energy Conservation / Sustainable Change
Changing the way your staff and stake-holders use energy is a surprisingly effective and low-cost way to cut costs and save resources. A tailored energy conservation project can reduce gas and electricity use by up to 20%, and help boost morale and staff retention. Speak to our Sustainable Change Manager for more information on such a project.
