Energy management and consumption analysis are key tools to cost and energy savings for any industry building. When regarding a company with multiple sites, such as a Federal Government Agency, energy production and consumption analysis can result in significant savings.
SmartConsult were recently commissioned by the Federal Government Agency to carry out energy assessments including an in-depth review of electricity and gas charges as well as a solar performances assessment of 55 sites across states in Australia.
We have been working towards achieving more than a 20% reduction in costs overall. This was achieved through the process of securing new electricity rates for the client and the analysis has resulted in savings of approximately $295,000 per annum on an estimated yearly expenditure of over $1.5 million.

As electricity is charged in two parts the first part being network charges (poles and wires) and the second part is retailer charges – the charges by your provider i.e. AGL, Origin etc. At SmartConsult, we specialise in the optimisation of the network tariff component and has a successful track record in making significant savings through adjusting the network tariffs for our clients. We have developed complex in-house systems that analyse your meter data (where available) and calculate annual network charges based on your electricity usage.
We then match your load profile against other network tariffs that may be applicable for your site and compare annual costs. If a more applicable (cheaper) tariff is found, then we will prepare formal submission to the local distributor to have the site network tariff changed. If you are on a demand tariff, we also review demand data to ensure your contract demand matches your demand profile. If your contract demand is too high, then we can formally request a demand reset through the local distributor.
