  • The Value of Energy Monitoring

    The first step to take in the energy reduction journey is monitoring. The old saying is true: “you can’t control what you can’t measure”. We design a monitoring scheme that will reveal the critical issues early and allows ongoing monitoring to ensure everything is working as it should. The monitoring system can be designed to […]

  • Saving Energy – Commercial Kitchens

    Our Alliance Partner, DNA Energy Solutions have for many years provided voltage management equipment to reduce energy consumed by lighting. This is particularly effective in factories with high bay lights. Savings of 25% to 35% are typically achieved in these situations. As factory high bay lights usually run all day, at peak tariff, it is very costly. […]

  • Energy Efficient LED Lighting

    We have been following the progress of WBS Technology for some years and it was good to see them at the Expo also. WBS became involved in LED lighting back when the quality available was indifferent and the cost prohibitive. WBS set out to manufacture their own LED lighting where they could guarantee the quality […]

  • Cradle to Cradle – Carpet

    Back in 2008 the Green Building Council of Australia ran the Green Cities Conference. At that conference there was an inspirational presentation by Michael Braungart, co-author of the book ‘Cradle to Cradle’. Michael outlined an entirely different way of thinking about technology modelled on a technological cycle which mimics the biological cycle. In this cycle […]

  • Energy Efficient Window Film

    Options for improving energy efficiency in existing buildings is always welcome. New high tech window films can help improve the thermal performance of your existing glazing. The air-conditioning load placed on a building with high solar heat gain on one side and cold shadows on the other is substantial and costly. By reducing the solar […]
