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.
