Our Energy Strategy Services are designed to make energy and emissions reduction simple and actionable.
In its simplest form we:
Review historical energy billing to understand cost structure and trends over time;
Analyse historical Time of Use (Smart Meter) Data to identify seasonal and operational trends, changes over time and immediate (no-cost, low-cost) energy reduction opportunities;
Review existing energy reduction initiatives; and
Provide a summary of available opportunities across existing buildings and energy system infrastructure.
Further to this, EduHealth Solutions can develop a cohesive and structured mechanism to progress energy reduction initiatives from business case to competitive quoting and into project implementation.
Covering key energy assets including lighting, heating and cooling (HVAC) and solar and storage technologies this service includes provision of:
Business Case – expected project costs, energy savings, impact on site and ROI metrics to assist the internal decision-making process – get the project approved with qualified projections;
Asset Registry – development of refinement of Asset Registry, with room by room breakdown of assets according to your site naming convention and floorplans. Fully filterable to assess key areas or create a staggered project implementation plan.
Image Library – room by room image reference to support competitive quoting process without requiring multiple site visits for quoting parties;
Competitive Quoting Process – development and issuance of a formatted RFQ to identified supply partners. Includes consolidation of quote submissions to enable single view of, and informed decision making around, the right delivery partner for your needs.
This services expands across retrofit and Master Planning services. Master Planning support includes:
Specification Development - a structured specification underpinned by energy efficiency, indoor environment outcomes (comfort), product quality, performance, lifetime, warranty and cost metrics;
Helping our customers take control, ensuring the balance of power rests with the building operator by:
setting terms on how designs are constructed @ Architecture – “meet this specification or seek approval to deviate;”
controlling design, cost, product standard and quality at build – removing ‘or equivalent’ from documentation, controlling the approval process for non-conforming products
What can be done?
optimisation - can the number and type of products (ie: LED lights) be consolidated into a manageable portfolio?
availability - ensuring products are 'readily available' in the market, and likely to be when replacements are needed in the future (solar inverters, LED fittings);
interchangeability - in case the product is rendered unavailable by the supplier (or they exit the industry).
consistency - ensuring new buildings match the existing infrastructure - aesthetics, environment, desired conditions;
intelligence - controls, sensors and other optimisation systems;
environment - learning outcomes, student and staff experience and AS compliance.
