Schneider Electric joins NSW Government's $20 million Energy Saver program
Energy Saver works with medium to large NSW sites (160MWh - 10GWh electricity consumption p.a.) to cut their energy use by at least 10%. Funding is available to all business sectors including manufacturing, commercial office buildings, hotels and government departments
The Energy Saver program is part of the NSW Government's $150 million Energy Efficiency Strategy which helps government, businesses and households to save power, money and the environment. Over the next five years the program hopes to achieve; 800 audits,600,000 MWh electricity savings, 50,000 GJ savings, and 640,000 tonnes CO2-e reduction.
David Trewin, Senior Manager, Sustainable Business, for the Energy Saver program says: “With energy costs on the rise, there has never been a better time for organisations to undergo an energy audit and discover what they don’t know about their energy consumption and reduce their energy bills.”
Phil Ridler, General Manager of Schneider Electric’s Pacific Energy Management team, is excited about the appointment.
“The program complements our corporate commitment to sustainability. Since January 2009 Schneider Electric globally have reduced their CO2 emissions by 110 156 metric tons. At the heart of our strategy is a simple but powerful idea; using natural resources more efficiently is both profitable and better for the environment, we help our customers do more with less.”
“An energy audit will benchmark your current energy consumption and is the first step towards targeted energy saving opportunities. Energy saving opportunities can exist in many areas such as HVAC, lighting, motor control and many industrial processes.“
Schneider Electric will also participate in a full Energy Saver briefing day hosted by the Office of Environment and Heritage on November 2.
