  • 20 applications for ~$21 million are awaiting evaluation
  • We manage $130 million of project CAPEX as a full service firm
  • We have obtained $10 million of NSW Energy Saving Certificates for our clients 


Energetics has supported 19 grant winning applications with quite different features, such as:
 

General (CTIP):

BOC Limited, $9,963,901, WA

BOC Ltd will replace its existing air separation unit and nitrogen liquefier unit with a modern, state-of-the-art air gas liquefaction plant. The project is expected to reduce the carbon emissions intensity of its production process by 54% and will result in energy savings of $3.48 million per year.

Fairfax Media Limited, $136,233, NSW

Fairfax Media Limited will replace existing high powered lighting throughout 10 regional newspaper printing plants across 7 states and territories with new technology low energy LED lighting. The project is expected to reduce the carbon emission intensity of the lighting by 61% and will result in savings of $139,000 in energy costs per year.

Monroe Australia Pty Ltd, $120,527, SA

Monroe Australia will upgrade the current stainless steel muffle of the sintering furnace to a more reliable and energy efficient ceramic muffle design. This upgrade will enable more efficient operation of the furnace. The project is expected to reduce Monroe Australia’s carbon emissions intensity of the muffle by 16% and will result in savings of $61,000 in energy costs per year.  Energetics reviewed and checked the energy and savings calculations before preparing all the necessary calculators and merit sections of the application for submission.

Monroe Australia Pty Ltd, $106,931, SA

Monroe will replace a two-phase zinc phosphate and soap lubrication method in the clean and lubrication process with a single, reactive oil lubrication method. The project is expected to reduce Monroe's site-wide carbon emissions intensity by 57% and result in savings of $28,000 in energy costs per year.

Pact Group Pty Ltd, $528,900, Vic NSW and Qld

The Pact Group will replace metal halide lights with induction lights across eight manufacturing sites in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. In addition, it will upgrade air compressors at two sites. The project is expected to reduce the carbon emissions intensity of these sites by 33.4% and will result in savings of $304,495 in energy costs per year.

Walker Australia Pty Limited, $451,696, SA

Walker Australia Pty Ltd will replace seven welding stations with one robot station, replace one fixed speed air compressor with a variable speed drive compressor, replace one compressed air dryer with an energy efficient dryer, and install a new PLC control system at their vehicle exhaust fabrication facility at O’Sullivan Beach in South Australia.
The project is expected to reduce the carbon emissions intensity of the facility by 31% and will result in savings of $144,000 in energy costs per year.
 

Food and Foundries (CTFFIP):

Alba Edible Oils Pty Ltd, $499,143, WA

Through this project, Alba Edible Oils will modify the plant’s refinery to automate the existing product changeover process and improve energy efficiency. Project activities include lagging of exposed pipe work and the optimisation or replacement of selected pumps, motors, boilers and a chiller. The project is expected to reduce Alba Edible Oils’ site-wide carbon emissions intensity of its Hamilton Hill facility by 53% and will result in savings of $190,000 in energy costs per year.  As with Diageo, Energetics assisted with thorough analysis and feasibility reviews which supported both the business case and the application’s development.

Confidential client, $1.5 million

Energetics assisted a food manufacturer in all aspects of the assessment of a cogeneration project and compiled the CTIP grant application. The grant was approved by the CTIP committee, however was not taken up in the end by the client due to new business priorities.

Confidential client $871,847

Energetics assisted a food and beverage manufacturer to conduct the analysis and feasibility reviews which supported both the business case and the application’s development for the installation of a 725 kW cogeneration system with reciprocating engine and implement a lighting system upgrade with energy efficient fittings, occupancy sensors and dimming controls at its facility. The project is expected to reduce the carbon emissions intensity by 41% and will result in savings of $252,000 in energy costs per year. 

Mars Australia Pty Ltd, $204,353, Vic

The project will involve high efficiency motor and variable speed drive upgrade in the chocolate production area, and insulation of steam utilisation pipes and vessels in the syrup area. The two emissions reduction measures will combine to reduce carbon intensity by 40% and result in savings of $97,000 in energy costs per year.

Ready Meals Pty Ltd, $619,466, Vic

Ready Meals will improve the design of the pre-cool tunnel and freezing tunnel to improve energy efficiency. The project is expected to reduce carbon emissions intensity of Ready Meals' refrigeration tunnel by 23% and will result in savings of $900,000 in energy costs per year. 

Simplot Australia Pty Ltd, $331,428, Vic

Simplot Australia will switch to induction light fittings and install movement sensors at seven of Simplot's manufacturing sites. The project is expected to reduce carbon emissions intensity of Simplot's light fittings at its seven sites by 45% and will result in savings of $250,000 in energy costs and $42,000 in associated maintenance costs.

Lion-Beer, Spirits & Wine Pty Ltd,  $115,898, NSW

Lion Australia will upgrade lighting for the packaging hall at its Tooheys Brewery facility in Lidcombe. Existing 367 metal halide high bay lights will be upgraded with energy efficient LED lights and supporting equipment. The project is expected to reduce the carbon emissions intensity of the packaging hall at Tooheys Brewery facility by 68% and result in savings of  $110,000 in energy and maintenance costs per year.
