Hot Water Heater Energy Use and Running Costs for Victoria

Client: Sustainability Victoria

EnergyConsult provided a model and report that estimates the annual energy running costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of different hot water systems in Victoria. The report updates an earlier study be another consultant prepared in May 2005 for Sustainability Victoria. The model and report calculated energy use, running costs and GHG emissions for each water heater type by climate zone and hot water load. The model utilised TRNSYS modelling of units in Australian Standard climate Zone 4 and Zone 3.
