  • EEO opportunities register

    EEO opportunities register

    This resource is a register of significant opportunities identified by corporations as part of the Australian Government’s Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program.

  • Compressed air

    Compressed air

    There is significant potential to save energy in compressed air systems by reducing the need for compressed air services, optimising equipment and upgrading old systems.

  • Cogenerator load control module

    Energy metering, monitoring and control

    Energy metering, monitoring and control systems reduce energy consumption directly, through improved control and, indirectly, by making energy consumption visible.

  • HVAC image

    Heating, ventilation and air conditioning

    Significant savings are achieveable in HVAC systems which typically account for upto 30% of energy use in commercial buildings.

  • Motors and motor systems

    Motors and motor systems

    Energy management focusing on electric motors and motor systems has the potential to save more electricity than in any other electricity end-use.

  • Lighting

    Lighting

    There are many low-cost and no-cost measures that can be implemented to reduce lighting costs without adversely affecting working conditions.

  • Gold ore grinding mills

    Mineral processing

    Comminution, separation and concentrate drying account for most of the energy use in the mining and mineral processing sectors. Comminution is the most energy intensive of these.

  • Process heat, boilers and steam systems

    Process heat, boilers and steam systems

    Energy use in process heating systems can be reduced by lowering demand for heating services, improving efficiency and by recovering heat for reuse.

  • Large industrial fan in tunnel

    Pumps and fans

    Together, pumps and fans account for around 40% of the motive power used in Australian industry. Potential savings can be significant.

  • Diesel engine close-up (truck)

    Transport technologies

    There are a range of technologies that offer better fuel efficiency such as reducing vehicle weight, alternative drivetrains, improved aerodynamics and alternative fuels.

  • Co-generation station

    Waste heat minimisation and recovery

    Waste heat minimisation and recovery are two of the most effective ways to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
