Senator Reid, representing the Minister for Industry, Science and Resources, presents Energetics with a Certificate of Achievement in recognition of its commitment to innovation, research and development in the industry.

An online information management solution developed by Energetics, which will enable significant reductions in energy expenditure and greenhouse gas emissions, was launched at a function in Canberra today.

The breakthrough technology for Our-e-Manager was supported with a $3.6 million Commonwealth Government R&D Start Grant.

Senator Margaret Reid, who was representing the Minister for Industry, Science and Resources, Senator Nick Minchin at the launch, presented the company with a Certificate of Achievement in recognition of its commitment to innovation, research and development in the industry.

Senator Reid said Energetics is well known in the energy industry, having provided energy and greenhouse consultancy services and solutions to major industrial, commercial and government energy consumers since 1984. The company has about 200 clients in Australia, including more than 20 of the top 50 companies, as well as numerous overseas clients.

Our-e-Manager is a powerful modular-based and enterprise-wide solution that can cater for the needs of mid to large sized organisations. The Energy Account Analysis Module tracks energy costs, reports exceptions and identifies potential savings. The Site Energy Performance Module determines daily/shift energy consumption. The module graphs daily load profiles, reduces these to easily understood performance indicators and highlights exceptions against targets. The Greenhouse Emissions Module manages greenhouse emissions for risk management and commitment programs.

"Any new product which is environmentally friendly and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions is a welcome addition to industry, and Our-e-Manager is certainly that", Senator Reid said.

"Greenhouse gas emission is a problem governments at all levels are aware of. Any company, such as Energetics, with products such as the one being launched today which will contribute to reducing the problem, is a good one."

"Our-e-Manager allows the deployment of solutions globally, quickly and consistently according to the specific needs of the customers."

"It is also unique in that it gives senior management a previously unavailable view of energy throughout group operations, ensuring the most effective use is being made of all energy sources within an organisation."

"Most importantly, it will reduce costs. The company believes that using Our-e-Manager can enable savings of up to 15 per cent, and with energy costs continually rising, this is an important factor in the bottom line performance of a company."
