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:
This case study presents Iluka Resources Limited’s successful adoption of the energy-mass balance (EMB) as the core method of energy analysis in its Synthetic Rutile facility in Iluka’s South West Operations, Western Australia. It discusses key aspects of Iluka’s experience, such as the EMB modelling approach, results achieved, lessons learned and the role the EMB will play in Iluka’s energy improvement initiatives. The case study was developed through Iluka’s participation in the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program.
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.
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 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.
