Aquatic Centre Tutorials
Improve Your Aquatic Centre Energy Productivity and Energy Waste Reduction
The first step in improving the energy efficiency of your aquatic centre is understanding how your aquatic centre functions now. Most aquatic centres are not ‘losing’ energy: the centres are actively ‘rejecting’ energy all day via their HVAC systems. We can assist you in understanding how this happens and what you can do about it.
Aquatic Centre Introduction
A 45 minute introduction to Australian aquatic centres focused on energy: how they are currently operated and where they should be headed. This is open to all of your staff that are interested and there is no charge. The session covers current centre design, how to introduce heat pumps and what the goals are of that process.
Aquatic Centre Tutorial
This is a 3 part tutorial for aquatic centre staff, engineers and sustainability officers to dive deeper into current thinking on aquatic centres, refrigerants and the numbers behind high efficiency centres. At the end of this session attendees should be able to:
- understand and converse with refrigeration engineers
- have a basic understanding of the heat pumps available on the market and understand which heat pumps are the best fit
- understand refrigerants and what is happening with the phase-down regime now underway
- understand what a high efficiency aquatic centre looks like and the metrics that are involved
Each session in the tutorial includes a Q and A and participants are tested on their understanding, as each session builds on the next. If you want to save a lot of money on consultants fees, this is where to start to build your inhouse expertise. The cost of the tutorial is $3600 plus GST for unlimited staff and support.
Aquatic Centre Energy Analysis
These are aquatic centre specific energy reports that analyse your current energy usage, model the introduction of heat pumps and provide a sequenced pathway for upgrades to reduce energy consumption. We focus on the lifespan of the centres and consider the best progression that is optimal and possible, with regards to budget, for the council. We encourage councils to make these reports available to other councils so that they can benchmark their centres more readily and plan better for their assets.
These reports take around 4 weeks to prepare and include:
- analysis of existing energy consumption
- a site visit to analyse existing plant on site
- log size and lifespan of existing plant
- recommendations for upgrades and modifications of existing systems
The cost for these reports starts at $8700 plus GST for a medium sized centre and we can provide you with pricing for larger centres on request.
