Assessment of Application for New REES Energy Efficiency Activity

Client: The Essential Services Commission of South Australia

The Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is a ‘white certificate' an energy efficiency scheme that provides incentives for South Australian households to achieve greenhouse gas reductions and potentially lower their energy bills. Approved activities are deemed to create certain amounts of energy saving and greenhouse abatement. EnergyConsult was commissioned to review the applications for new activities before they were approved. EnergyConsult provided advice on the technical viability of the activities to achieve their claimed savings, the testing of the effectiveness of the activities and the calculations of savings.
