Energy Efficiency Opportunities - Representative Assessment Guide


Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism



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. It can however be used by any corporation with a population of similar energy using processes that is looking to gain a greater understanding if the interactions between complex energy systems, using a range of statistical and non-statistical methods.
