Energy-mass balance - mining

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 mining 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.

Energy-mass balance - commercial buildings

Date

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.

 

Energy Efficiency Opportunities - Assessment Handbook

Date

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.

Analyses of diesel use for mine haul and transport operations - several companies

Date

This case study demonstrates analyses of diesel use in trucks by trending energy data over time, development of models and simulations, use of indicators, and benchmarking, including theoretical benchmarking. It also shows how an Energy Mass Balance (EMB) has been applied to rail operations and provides examples of comprehensive analyses of diesel use in mining operations used by Fortescue Metals Group Ltd, Downer EDI Mining Pty Ltd and Leighton Contractors Pty Limited. It was developed through these companies' participation in the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program.

Building Code Calculator

Date

The Australian Government commissioned the development of software to estimate the emissions reduction and energy savings arising from future changes to the National Construction Code.

Stock on the Water Analysis

Date

Analysis investigates the typical quantity of stock both Australia and New Zealand hold in the category of 'tankers at sea' and where the stock is typically located.

Energy productivity skills and training pathway - Final report

Date

The objective of this scoping study was to examine the range of essential skills, knowledge and experience that specialist energy efficiency professionals require to provide energy efficiency and energy productivity services.

Changes associated with Efficient Dwellings project - final report

Date

This report was commissioned by the Department of the Environment and Energy who have managed this project on behalf of all Australian jurisdictions under Measure 31.2 of the National Energy Productivity Plan. The report contributes to research in the residential buildings sector, by conducting an independent study into, and providing examples from the building industry of, the changes that have been implemented and are associated with constructing more energy-efficient dwellings.
