Pressure from tenants, shareholders, the community and governments to improve the built environment's health and environmental impacts is driving growth in ‘green buildings’, with particular focus on energy and water efficiency, and air quality. The Commercial Building Disclosure scheme also encourages implementation of energy efficiency improvements in order to remain competitive in the property market.

Energetics’ technical expertise and strategic advice helped Woolworths identify and implement cost effective renewable energy projects as part of our long term sustainability plan.

How can Energetics help?

Our commercial buildings experts offer:

  • energy auditing to understand consumption data (kWh) and identify opportunities for energy efficiency improvements and peak load demand management

  • NABERS assessments: our accredited assessors can certify your next retrofit to achieve eligibility for the Tax Breaks for Green Buildings program and assess office space of more than 2000 sqm for Building Energy Efficiency Certificates (BEEC)

  • prioritising the implementation of identified savings across a portfolio of opportunities using tools such as abatement curves to maximise the organisational benefits

  • business case development for funding and financing of energy efficiency improvements through various schemes: Energy Savings Scheme (ESS), Energy Upgrade Agreements, Energy Performance Contracting and treasury loans

  • implementing energy management solutions to maximise the performance of new or existing sites, such as renewable onsite power generation, energy efficient lighting and hot water systems, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), water capture, saving and storage systems

  • energy modelling for proposed and existing buildings to predict energy consumption

  • monitoring retrofit performance though our proven measurement and verification methodology.  Energetics has Australia’s largest team of professionals accredited to the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP)

  • facilitating innovative contracting such as leasing and Energy Performance Contracting  to ensure capital investment for Energy Conservation Measures is recouped through utility bill savings
