ENERGY MANAGEMENT & OPTIMISATION

SAM has taken a holistic approach to Energy Management for existing and Green Buildings:  An Audit is conducted to see where the most saving can be achieved, using the Pareto Principle. A combination of both active and passive technologies are used.


ACTIVE & PASSIVE TECHNOLOGIES


Active Technologies encompass;

BMS (Building Management System)

  • Access Control
  • Fire Detection
  • CCTV
  • Lighting
  • HVAC
  • Heat Pumps
  • PV (Photovoltaic) Systems

Passive Technologies encompass;

  • Double Glazing
  • Insulation of roofs, walls and floors
  • Alucobond® insulation
  • Recycled cork panels
  • Exfoliated vermiculite

DME ENERGY GOALS


Final Demand Reduction of 12 % by 2015

  • 15% reduction by 2015 of energy use in Industry & Mining
  • 15% reduction by 2015 of "parasitic" electrical usage
  • 15% reduction by 2015 of energy use Commercial & Public Building Sectors
  • 10% reduction by 2015 of energy use in Residential Sector
  • 9% reduction by 2015 of energy use in Transport

ELECTRICAL COSTS


Electricity Costs have doubled over the past three years
Electricity Cost will rise by an average of 16% p.a. for the foreseeable future
The compound effect means that electrical costs will become a major operational cost.
