Best energy efficiency projects in Australia announced at national Energy Efficiency Conference

The winners of the National Energy Efficiency Industry Awards 2014 were announced recently in Sydney. The Awards recognised the best projects, programs and leaders across seven categories that demonstrate excellence in performance, leadership and innovation in energy efficiency.

Out Performers was runner up in the Best Industrial Project category, winning a Highly Commended award.

Our winning entry was a network of 27 sub-meters installed at a large food processing plant, and the project used innovative techniques for getting the data from the sub-meters to the client’s Citec SCADA and then to Out Performers’ energy monitoring platform.

  • Socomec power meters were installed on homogenisers, separators, and blow moulders, as well as the compressed air system and cooling station.
  • Flow meters for compressed air (CS-iTEC) and steam (Krohne) were installed, while the gas input to the boiler was measured using the spare pulse meter on the Jemena gas meter via a Jemena Client Intrinsic Interface Panel.

Our project showed how sub-meters could be successfully installed in even the most difficult and complex environments. It has enabled our client to start monitoring their energy consumption and other metrics and therefore give them a head start in identifying suitable opportunities for achieving energy savings in a systematic manner. This data has already allowed the client to optimise compressed air operations and reduce maintenance costs.

Congratulations to the project team, Phil Goodfellow and his deputy project manager Sam Gardner, (shown in the accompanying photograph), as well as to our client for conceptualising and undertaking such an ambitious project.
