THE CHALLENGE
Escalating building running costs
Aurora on Pirie is one of Adelaide’s most desirable corporate locations. That said, attracting commercial tenancies within the CBD is increasingly competitive. More appealing outgoings (lower) is one way of capturing & retaining high-value tenants.

OUR SOLUTION
Major energy efficiency upgrade
Sustainable Savings deployed seven elements with this major building energy efficiency upgrade. We also provided greater control and oversight for building management and expanded the life of key equipment.

OPPORTUNITY WINDOW
Efficiency rebates and lost savings if delayed
Solution was designed to take advantage of government rebates before they ended. More importantly, delays in deployment would mean lost savings.

Manufacturing

cs rmwilliams

Avoided $600,000 in costs

12% reduction in energy costs

  • Avoided large CAPEX cost
  • Made considerable bill savings at same time
  • Attractive return on investment
  • Improved quality of power supply

THE CHALLENGE
Prohibitively costly load increase
The iconic RM Williams apparel and footwear business was in expansion mode but constrained by the existing transformer nearing capacity. SA Power Networks quoted $600,000 to upgrade the transformer to meet requirements.
There had to be a be er way? While the additional power was essential to drive growth, it constituted a significant cost for indirect capital expenditure (CAPEX).

OUR SOLUTION
How about energy efficiency?
Sustainable Savings engineers undertook an in-depth investigation and designed a multi-element solution. They identified additional capacity through supply conditioning and consumption efficiency. A number of solution elements working in tandem would create the desired capacity and reduce RM William’s energy bill.

OPPORTUNITY WINDOW
The timeframe was urgent
Turn an unpalatable CAPEX investment into a great one. It was a major role reversal, which proved an easy decision. The business needed the additional capacity.

Hotel

cs renmark hotel

$84,000 savings the first year

Payback of 3.1 years

  • Knocked out a third of the energy bill
  • Six elements in holistic solution
  • Substantial site sustainability upgrade
  • Deployed 2nd solution saving hot water and gas

THE CHALLENGE
Growing energy costs worth tackling
This popular Riverland hotel was recently renovated and found that savings from solar photovoltaics alone would not achieve its investment benchmark. Could a holistic energy solution pay for itself?

OUR SOLUTION
Large holistic energy solution
Sustainable Savings explored the opportunity to combine and leverage all potential savings elements. Could a basket of elements meet the hotel’s investment criteria?

OPPORTUNITY WINDOW
Coming out of contract and equipment damage
For Renmark Hotel management, it was an opportune time to consider an energy solution. Pangolin’s investigation also discovered high voltage would have been reducing the life of the hotel’s electrical equipment.

Medical Centres

cs family health

  • Included LED upgrade and air-con optimisation
  • Demonstrated how to procure cheapest power

THE CHALLENGE
Tight-margins – key to cost control
Family Health Group is a privately owned health and medical practice servicing Adelaide’s northern suburbs. Energy price rises were outpacing bulk billing price rises and the owners recognised this trend had to be disrupted.

OUR SOLUTION
