Retail

Consumers are also increasingly analysing the carbon footprint of their purchases. It is essential that companies understand and analyse these operational impacts and look for opportunities to improve their bottom line through operational and energy efficiency improvements as well as integrating sustainability strategies across business operations and supply chain to achieve ‘first mover’ competitive advantage.


How can Energetics help?

Energetics works with the retail operators and owners of buildings to improve energy and water efficiency and integrate sustainability strategies across their operations and supply chain. We help our clients achieve competitive advantage through strategic project identification, program management, implementation and ongoing monitoring, reporting and advisory services.

We can help you achieve energy and cost savings through:

  • supply chain analysis and carbon footprinting to identify your carbon exposure, risks and opportunities

  • energy auditing to understand energy consumption data (kWh) and identify opportunities for energy efficiency improvements and peak load demand management across sites, buildings, tenancies, activity areas, etc.

  • conducting energy assessments and reporting (Energy Efficiency Opportunities and Assessment and Reporting Schedule), streamlining reporting requirements, and preparations for external audit and verification

  • NABERS assessments: our accredited assessors assess the environmental impacts of buildings in accordance with environmental rating schemes

  • development of strategies to prioritise 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, VEET), Energy Upgrade Agreement, Energy Performance Contracting and government grants

  • financial modelling to provide understanding of the value attributed to the identified opportunities. In many cases this will incorporate additional funding and financing of energy efficiency improvements through various schemes: Energy Savings Scheme (ESS, VEET), Energy Upgrade Agreement, and treasury loans and other grants, funding and tax breaks

  • implementing energy and carbon management solutions to maximise the performance of new or existing sites, such as renewable onsite power generation, energy-efficient lighting, refrigeration, lifts and escalators, 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 over the life of a building

  • monitoring retrofit performance though our proven measurement and verification methodology using 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 that result from the project
