An energy audit is a good place to start. Give us a call and we can work out a solution for your time frame and budget.
An Energy Audit is an investigation in to how, when, where, and why energy is being used and what is using it. At the end of the audit a report is presented. This will contain a list of energy and cost saving opportunities detailing what investment (if any) is required along with the potential savings in terms of costs, energy consumption and emissions, and return on the investment (payback).
For the foreseeable future, the answer is yes. Both the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions under the National Greenhouse Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme and energy under the Energy Efficiency Opportunities scheme (EEO) were introduced under a Liberal government. The government is unlikely to roll this back.
Basically, to be carbon neutral a business has to offset the greenhouse gas emissions generated by and on behalf of your business with carbon credits. The first step is to work out your annual emissions and then to minimise them before purchasing credits. To gain recognition for being carbon Neutral you will have to register and have your program registered and verified. To find out more by giving us a call or visit the National Carbon Offset Program web site.
'Carbon' emissions are short hand for greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). These gases have been determined by the IPCC. The main gases are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and a number of refrigerants. The main sources of these emissions are fossil fuel combustion in transportation and in electricity generation; organic waste decomposition at landfill sites; various manufacturing process; and, off course refrigerant leaks.
