Reduce your energy use and save money

Reducing energy consumption will increase profits and help you to meet environmental responsibility goals through a lower carbon footprint.

Be energy efficient

The first step to using less energy is to know where it is being used. Monitor energy, gas and water consumption for each site, accounting for lighting, heating ventilating and air conditioning systems (HVAC).

Reducing energy consumption is a win-win for any organisation. It reduces the emission of greenhouse gases into the environment and can significantly reduce your energy costs.

A carbon or energy reduction plan is required if you are undertaking formal certification. However, even if you are not going this route it is still highly recommended that every business or household look at ways to reduce emissions. This can be achieved through such things as becoming more energy efficient, reducing waste or eliminating unnecessary travel.

Reducing energy costs and consumption is easier than you think. Carbon Neutral’s senior carbon advisors have significant experience conducting site energy evaluations. You can select varying levels of service, from a small-scale assessment to a high level AS/NZS 3598:2014 compliant audit.  Prior to the assessment we will have a meeting with you to discuss your requirements and outcomes to ascertain the best level of assessment to provide.

By auditing the way in which your organisation uses energy and looking at how your staff use facilities, we can determine the best way for you to become more energy efficient, reduce costs and in turn benefit the environment. We typically find that our clients can achieve energy cost reductions of between 20-30% per annum.
