Date

A summary of the roles and responsibilities of key figures within a large organisation that are relevant to corporate energy management.

The positions for which these roles are summarised are:

  • chief financial officers
  • environmental health and safety professionals
  • mechanical or electrical engineers
  • technicians and tradespeople
  • sustainability officers

Energy efficiency - University of Queensland

Date

This case study describes University of Queensland’s (UQ) energy efficiency program at St Lucia Campus, where centralised energy management provided a better understanding of its energy use. UQ developed user-friendly online graphical user interfaces for staff and students of varying expertise to interact with energy data. The case study was developed as part of UQ’s participation in the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program.

Systems optimisation to improve energy productivity - several companies

Date

The purpose of these case studies is to demonstrate how systems optimisation can be used to improve energy efficiency and productivity in a wide range of industrial applications. They were developed through companies' participation in the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program. Examples from 3 companies highlight different aspect of systems optimisation:

Energy Efficiency Opportunities - Representative Assessment Guide

Date

This guide was developed to assist companies with undertaking an energy efficiency assessment on a sample that is reasonably representative of their population of similar sites, fleets, technologies or processes. This type of assessment is also referred to as a representative assessment (RA). The purpose of the guide was to assist in determining whether an RA was appropriate for a corporation’s circumstances as well as provide guidance on how to conduct an RA to the level of accuracy required by the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program.

OneSteel Newcastle Rod Mill - case study

Date

OneSteel began its first assessments for the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program at their Sydney Steel Mills group, which includes Newcastle Rod Mill, Sydney Melt Shop and Sydney Bar Mill, in mid 2008. The management team for the project decided to use the assessments as an opportunity to build the company’s capacity to understand and manage energy use, and to generate long term business benefits. This case study describes the new systems and tools that were initially developed for the Sydney Steel Mills group and rolled out across OneSteel.

Functional skills for an energy efficiency assessment

Date

This document details roles and skills required to undertake, report on and implement the findings of rigorous energy efficiency assessments for large energy users. It is the result of research primarily based around the assessment requirements of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program. The findings also have relevance for companies participating in state government energy assessment programs and other companies wishing to improve their energy efficiency performance.

Energy-mass balance - resource processing

Date

This guide outlines the key considerations for the development of an energy-mass balance (EMB), a method for accounting for the energy and material flows within a resource processing site. It was designed for corporations to meet the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program but can used by any large energy user as a guide on how to effectively develop an EMB.

Energy Savings Measurement Guide

Date

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.
