The Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) is the Australian Governments signature policy to reduce national carbon emissions and work toward meeting our emission reduction targets set under both the Kyoto protocol and the Paris Climate Agreement. Similarly, State Government Schemes such as the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) and Victorian Energy Upgrades Program (VEU, formerly the ‘VEET’) have been established to incentivise energy efficiency upgrades from activities ranging from commercial lighting upgrades, compressed air to ‘fuel switching’.
The EnergyLink Services team are equipped to deliver turnkey ERF/ESS/VEU advisory services including eligibility assessment, project registration & accreditation, development of Scheme compliant systems & processes, ACCU procurement and project reporting.
EnergyLink Services has the demonstrated experience to provide your organisation with a rigorous independent energy assessment (sometimes referred to as an energy audit). Through the process of assessing energy consumption, EnergyLink Services can identify and quantify likely energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities that your organisation can employ to not only improve your energy usage but do so in an economically viable manner.
EnergyLink Services can also assist in facilitating the implementation of the opportunities that have been identified in an energy audit. This includes the development of a ‘go-to-market’ strategy, leveraging our existing network of solution providers to commence installations, provide project management expertise and leverage financial benefits from government schemes where possible.
Rigorous measurement and verification (M&V) is an essential component of any energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrade.
The EnergyLink Services’ team provide M&V services based on the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP). IPMVP is the internationally accepted standard for validating energy savings. Specific M&V services the EnergyLink Services team can provide include:
Preparation of M&V plans compliant with IPMVP
Assistance to get your organisation accredited under the NSW Energy Savings Scheme Project Impact Assessment with Measurement and Verification (PIAM&V) and Victorian Energy Upgrades Scheme Project-based Activities (PBA)
Using M&V Plans to obtain project finance
EnergyLink Services' in-house team of industry professionals are capable of identifying and assessing the technical and financial feasibility of energy efficiency and renewable energy options best suited to your organisation including:
Power factor, compressed air, HVAC, commercial lighting and other energy efficiency upgrades
‘Behind-the-meter’ solar and ‘offsite’ solar solutions
Onsite energy storage solutions
Wind and hydro power
Hydrogen feasibility assessment
Energy procurement, including renewable energy PPAs
Customised biofuel, biomass and biogas solutions
Sustainability is becoming a more important expectation of investors and business stakeholders. Along with this there is a growing number of sustainability related reporting methodologies such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), CDP (Formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) and Science Based Targets.
EnergyLink Services can provide expert advice on which reporting methodology to adopt and how to gather and assess data to meet the requirements and report under the appropriate reporting mechanism.
EnergyLink Services can help your business to identify the most critical operational risks associated with a changing climate and help you implement robust strategies to build resilience into your business. Key service offerings associated with this service stream include:
Climate change risk assessment and quantification
Adaptation and resilience planning
Embedding climate change considerations into business decision making
Communication of climate risks to business investors and stakeholders
EnergyLink Services can assist you to understand and manage your organisations carbon emissions, claim carbon neutrality and to seek carbon neutral certification under the National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS).
EnergyLink Services can help your organisation measure, reduce, offset, report and audit emissions for your operations, specific products & services, events, precincts or buildings.
Energy and sustainability are an ever-evolving industry. As we learn more about how our actions have impacts on the earth system there is an increasing need to stay informed on how best to avoid, mitigate or minimise this impact. EnergyLink Services can provide bespoke energy and sustainability training tailored for the C-Suite to sustainability practitioners and daily operational staff.
