Australia’s biggest city saves big on energy and water at 47 retail, commercial and council buildings.
The City of Sydney (the City) is committed to improving its environmental performance under the 2030 Sustainable Sydney vision.
In 2011, the City went to market for a partner to help them meet their vision, by delivering an Energy and Water Efficiency Retrofit of 47 of the City’s Buildings and Operations, one of the most ambitious of any Australian government.
The energy and water retrofit project, worth $7,129,235, is a key component of the Sustainable Sydney 2030 plan. The city will see improvements to lighting, HVAC, VSD’s, PC power management, occupancy comfort, water saving initiaves, building control systems.
In addition to the project works, Ecosave provided the City with monthly energy management services to report on the savings achieved by the project and to identify additional opportunities to optimise energy usage.
All works were implemented using a flexible approach to suit the City’s requirements and with no disruption to the City’s facilities and operations.
The city aim to reduce carbon emissions by 7,000 tonnes per year with energy and water efficiency solutions. With the initiatives implemented by Ecosave the City is 95% on their way to achieving these targets.
I recently met with senior property management and I am pleased to say the feedback was excellent. The team are particularly impressed with Ecosave’s communications and it’s good to see your hard work has paid off
