Review of Abatement Factors for New Activities Proposed for the Energy Saver Incentive Scheme

Client: Department of Primary Industries, Victoria

The Energy Saver Incentive is the public name for one of the first mandatory energy efficiency target schemes in Australia. The scheme places legislative requirements on energy retailers in Victoria to save a minimum amount of energy. Approved activities are deemed to create certain amounts of energy saving. EnergyConsult was commissioned to review the energy savings justifications and calculations for new activities before they were approved. EnergyConsult provided advice on the technical viability of the activities to achieve their claimed savings and the calculations of savings.
