Enhar on Panel: Can solar farms on landfills increase the Sustainability of Australia's Waste Sector?
Enhar conducted a Type 1 Energy Audit of the Vitality Brands head office. Their draft and final reports allowed us to understand our energy consumption, existing behaviours and what steps to take to improve our energy usage. We implemented 3 simple recommendations from the report that led to a cut in electricity usage by 8.5% in Year 1, which meant the audit payback period was just 12 months!
We will implement a 4th recommendation in Year 2, where we estimate a further saving of 10-20%. The insight Enhar provided us into energy usage (as well as the education on energy in Australia more broadly) has been invaluable and we have a clear path to energy efficiency. We have also just completed a carbon footprint audit of our company operations which actually stemmed from our discussions with Enhar.
Money well invested!
Ian and Demian took the time to understand council's drivers for the study at the outset of the project. Their genuine interest in the project along with their technical expertise and understanding of the energy market and renewable energy industry meant they were well able to communicate their findings to council staff. I'd highly recommend Enhar to anyone wanting to explore the feasibility of direct investment in renewable energy generation.
The technical analysis seemed excellent, objectively advocating issues of importance to the client in a clear comprehensive suite of reports.
Easy to work with, knowledgable explained technical concepts in a way that could be easily understood. Delivered high quality reports and technical documentation. The technical guidance provided enabled Council to prioritise and deliver projects with confidence that they will deliver as expected.
Enhar has provided high-quality services for a behind-the-meter renewable energy feasibility study for a regional water corporation. Enhar delivered their work ahead of schedule, were extremely cost competitive and provided a detailed and thorough analysis of our requirements. Most importantly, the team were a pleasure to work with: personable and focused. Highly recommended!
Faced with the time consuming administrative process to complete the Clean Energy Grant, we engaged Enhar to complete our application. Both Chris & the team at Enhar provided an excellent and timely service.
Enhar investigated every avenue to ascertain where our power consumption was being used and how to curtail it. Their attention to detail was admirable.
Enhar provided good service for us and were always flexible in helping us reach our goals. We would recommend them to anyone looking for assistance.
Mornington Peninsula is very pleased with the services delivered by Enhar in undertaking our recent wind resource monitoring project. Enhar's technical competency, quality control, customer service and clear presentation of the results have given the Shire a good understanding of the available wind resource at a number of sites.
The assistance Enhar provided for obtaining capital funding under the Victorian State Government's SRSB Energy and Materials Program was very professional and of a high standard. Enhar accepted the challenge to work within a very short time frame in order to meet the approaching application deadline. I am now happy to announce that Sun Ace (Australia) Pty. Ltd. is on the 2014 list of capital funding recipients for energy efficiency projects. I have therefore no hesitation in recommending their services to other prospective grant applicants.
We initially engaged Enhar to complete a solar energy audit to better understand how solar energy would benefit the Hospital, and to ensure that our infrastructure was able to handle the installation. 4 days after we engage Enhar a grant became available for solar energy which was due for submission 2 weeks later. After talking to Enhar and explaining the extremely tight timeframe involved, they were able to visit the site, crunch the numbers and have a draft report ready in time for our submission. It was nothing short of amazing and certainly helped us out immensely. We highly recommend their service and believe solar energy should be something all health services should aim for.
Enhar provided Canadian Solar with support in an ARENA grant proposal and Market Research regarding Solar PV+Energy Storage Systems (ESS). Canadian Solar (Australia) Pty Ltd is very pleased with Enhar's services and the high-quality results were meeting our expectations. We can recommend Enhar without second thoughts and will definitely contract the team again. Enhar is a terrific consultancy company. Very knowledgeable, switched-on, great value and meeting deadlines.
We have been working with the Enhar team since 2008. The Diamond Energy / Enhar working relationship continues to be a collaborative partnership that allows both parties to explore mutually beneficial areas and exchange knowledge.
In the current tough manufacturing environment, containing costs is critical and no costs are increasing more rapidly than energy costs. But where do you start? Wood Furniture contacted the team at Enhar to conduct a full energy audit to highlight opportunities for savings and to assist in applying for a Clean Energy Grant. And now have the tools, contacts and opportunity to reduce our energy costs. I highly recommend Enhar to organizations faced with the need to contain rising energy costs and the desire to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Enhar successfully delivered a comprehensive micro generation feasibility study for Moreland City Council in 2014. Additionally we asked Enhar to deliver detailed designs for commercial scale PV systems across 11 of Councils high profile buildings. We were most satisfied with the product Enhar delivered and the thoroughness and professionalism demonstrated by their project team.
The work has underpinned Stage 4 of Councils Carbon Management Strategy - Renewable Energy Production, which enables Council to pursue cost effective solar PV installations for future programs.
