Australian Manufacturing - Gas Efficiency Guide

30 August 2018

Australian manufacturers are being encouraged to take immediate steps to manage their energy consumption in the face of escalating energy costs and record gas prices.

In a joint initiative, the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, the Energy Efficiency Council and the Australian Industry Group have launched the Australian Manufacturing: Gas Efficiency Guide - a comprehensive resource identifying practical and proven strategies to deliver energy and cost savings across manufacturing operations.

The guide examines the energy needs of a range of manufacturers, from food and beverage production to metals fabrication, printing and furniture manufacturing. It finds significant opportunities to cut energy use, such as a meat processing plant which saved $45,000 per month by cutting gas use by 20% after upgrades to its boiler and steam facilities.
