Development of Deemed Energy Saving Methodologies of the Proposed National Energy Savings Initiative (NESI)

Client: Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency

EnergyConsult, with assistance from Beletich Associates, prepared a set of potential energy savings activities to be included in the proposed NESI, undertaken research on deeming methodology approaches appropriate to those actions, and prepared a set of deeming methodologies and calculations to determine the average energy savings for each of the proposed activities.  Developing these deeming methodologies included making recognition of the climate, building stock and appliance market penetration variations across Australia and adding appropriate factors to the deeming algorithms to calculate savings in different climatic regions and jurisdictions.
