Energy Use Models for Australia/New Zealand Industrial Sector

Client: Sustainability Victoria on behalf of the Equipment Energy Efficiency Program

EnergyConsult developed models to estimate the current and projected energy use and greenhouse emissions, and the potential energy and greenhouse savings for new minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) targeting certain types of industrial equipment. This exercise also involved an initial assessment of the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of implementing MEPS for certain types of industrial equipment, with the aim of developing a prioritised list of products to be proposed for regulatory action over a 10 year period. EnergyConsult also provided technical advice on specific industrial equipment and testing standards for regulated MEPS.
