ENERGY SAVINGS CALCULATIONS AND BUSINESS CASE
Switched On Lighting has designed comprehensive spreadsheets which detail information on energy savings and provide a powerful business case.
The purpose of our spreadsheets is to record all capital and installation cost information, important assumptions (e.g. installed demand, run hours) and to calculate energy savings which will result from the proposed upgrade.
Our spreadsheets provide our clients with information on: existing fitting type, existing fitting size, existing mounting arrangements, existing lamp type, existing lamp watts, existing circuit or auxiliary watts, existing lux level, existing lumens per circuit watt, existing wattage per square meter, existing run hours per room, assumed annual consumption, existing lighting demand, assumed annual lighting electricity cost, proposed fitting type, proposed fitting size, proposed mounting arrangements, proposed lamp type, proposed lamp watts, proposed circuit or auxiliary watts, wattage per square meter, proposed lux level, assumed new annual consumption, new lighting demand, calculated new annual lighting electricity cost, etc, which demonstrates all information they require and is easy to identify.
Our business case for our clients contain following information:
In support of improving our planet, a number of States in Australia are implementing energy efficiency initiatives. Both Victoria and New South Wales have already set up schemes of this nature and more are expected to follow.
As an environmentally aware organisation, Switched On Industrial Lighting is proud to support these initiatives and has gained approval for our range of Induction and LED high bay light fittings. For further details of what this means and how each scheme works, take a look at our guide below or contact us to find out how much of a rebate you qualify for.
The Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme
The aim of the Scheme is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 8.1 million tonnes over a three year period. Within the VEET scheme a requirement is placed on energy retailers throughout Victoria to meet their own greenhouse gas emission reduction targets through energy efficiency activities, such as providing households with energy saving products and services at little or no cost.
The Scheme supports households and businesses to implement energy efficient solutions such as high efficiency products, which will assist in future energy savings. Energy savings produced through the implementation of these products are converted into greenhouse gas emissions certificates and will count towards the VEET target.
Visit The Essential Services Commission website for further details of VEET.
New South Wales Energy Savings Scheme (ESS)
The Scheme provides a structure for the creation of energy saving certificates (ESCs) for any approved Recognised Energy Saving Activity (RESA). An ESC is equivalent to 1 tonne of carbon dioxide (equivalent) which is equal to 1.06 Megawatt hours of energy.
ESCs are created by Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) when they are responsible for activities that reduce electricity consumption or increase efficiency of electricity consumption. The ACP can then sell these certificates to electricity retailers who have an annual target number of certificates they have to acquire and create. The proceeds from the sale are passed back to the client and all ESCs are recorded in the ESS Registry.
