A guide to improve energy efficiency at your YMCA Aquatic Centre

Date

Aquatic Centres use an enormous amount of energy. But with efficiency measures, YMCA Spark pilot site Peter Krenz Aquatic Centre managed to cut electricity use by 8.5% and identified opportunities to save a further 20%. This Aquatic Centre found that by being more energy efficient and making some smart energy investments, they could have a reduction off their energy bills of at least $30,000 per year.

Energy Management in Practice Manual

Date

This manual gives a detailed overview covering many aspects of energy and resource management.  It includes sections on managing people, motivation, information sharing, collecting data, identifying opportunities and assessing outcomes. It can be used across multiple sectors and by organisations of various sizes. Those responsible for the design and implementation of an energy management system will find this resource particularly useful.

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.

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-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.
