Savio &amp; Co. (Savios) pack house and cold storage showed where energy use and costs could be reduced. Savios facility in Pozieres Queensland produces and packs approximately 4000 tonnes of apples per annum. It is a large facility with 14 cold storage rooms controlled by a refrigeration system that utilises 3 large ammonia compressors ranging from 22 kilowatt (kW) to 37kW in size. From May 2013 to February 2014 the pack house consumed just over 435,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity at a cost of almost $95,000 (excluding GST). There were significant opportunities to reduce electricity costs at Savios facilities through demand management.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-documents field--type-file field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Documents</div> <div class='field__items'> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://www.energy.gov.au/sites/default/files/timing_peak_energy_use_stanthorpe_0.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=285410" title="timing_peak_energy_use_stanthorpe.pdf">timing peak energy use - P.

Amending the HVAC operating hours, remove excess lighting, installing timers on zip boilers, upgrading an old vending machine, and changes to staff behaviour all made a significant difference: in twelve months, energy consumption reduced by 196,817 KwH, a saving of $26,191. </p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-documents field--type-file field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Documents</div> <div class='field__items'> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://www.energy.gov.au/sites/default/files/unitingcare_case_study.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=189331" title="unitingcare_case_study.pdf">UnitingCare energy audits and behaviour change (PDF 180KB)</a></span> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 12 Apr 2019 04:24:23 +0000 paulross 3112 at https://www.energy.gov.au Upgrades and behaviour change - Multicultural Services Centre WA https://www.energy.gov.au/publications/upgrades-and-behaviour-change-multicultural-services-centre-wa <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Upgrades and behaviour change - Multicultural Services Centre WA</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/paulross" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">paulross</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 2019-04-12 14:16</span> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Publisher</div> <div class="field__item">Australian Government</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-date field--type-datetime field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Date</div> <div class="field__item"><time datetime="2014-01-01T12:00:00Z" class="datetime">Wed, 2014-01-01 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publication-type-taxonomy field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Type</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/publication-type/case-study" hreflang="en">Case study</a></div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>When the Multicultural Services Centre of WA conducted an energy audit, air conditioning showed up as a large cost for the community services organisation.
