This guide provides corporations with technical advice about estimating and measuring energy efficiency opportunities, presenting results to decision-makers and tracking and reporting the opportunities. It also provides guidance on how to identify and estimate the wider business benefits and costs from implementing energy efficiency opportunities. It was designed for corporations to meet the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program but can be used by any corporation seeking to improve the accuracy of their energy savings estimates and measurements.
This is a guide on how to effectively develop an energy-mass balance (EMB), a method for accounting for the energy and material flows for a commercial building and its processes. It was designed for corporations to meet the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program but can used by any large energy user.
This handbook provides guidance for large energy users on how to effectively conduct an energy efficiency assessment. It draws on the practical experiences of companies and consultants that have undertaken effective energy assessments and can help corporations plan and implement assessments in a way that will optimise business outcomes. The handbook was designed for corporations to meet the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program but can be used by any large energy user.
Summarises the HVAC HESS wireless metering report released in January 2012 that demonstrates the benefits of retrofitting wireless metering to existing buildings.
Provides some basic information on thermal storage including a description of sensible heat, latent heat and thermo-chemical storage and how these may apply to chiller operation through load leveling and load shifting strategies.
Demonstrates the importance of keeping condenser and evaporator coils clean in HVAC systems.
Covers the energy efficiency and environmental benefits of retrofitting a revolving door to an existing building.
Provides information on a range of mechanisms for overcoming split incentives as a barrier to investment in energy efficiency upgrades.
Describes the heat pump cycle, types of heat pumps and heat recovery systems, heat pump and heat recovery performance and the impact that these systems may have on energy efficiency.
A summary of what’s included in the Guide to best practice maintenance & operation of HVAC systems for energy efficiency released in January 2012.
