The installed base of non-residential HVAC systems in Australia are estimated to:
A ten year strategy designed to improve the energy performance of HVAC systems was commissioned by the Equipment Energy Efficiency committee.
The resulting strategy has received widespread industry and stakeholder endorsement and has a target of improving the energy efficiency of the installed base of systems by 20% over the life of the strategy. If that target is achieved it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 4Mt pa and save as much as $350 million in energy costs pa.
The strategy that has been designed addresses many non-technical barriers to efficiency while identifying and promoting highly efficient technical solutions, systems optimisation processes and creating the environment in which energy efficiency gains are valued, measurable and sustainable.
More than 20 separate but complimentary measures are proposed across eight priority areas, grouped under three broad strategic initiatives.This page last modified 17 November 2009
