Don’t just take our word for it.
Here are some real world examples of what our clients have achieved with our help. If they sound like the results you want, let’s talk.
Wilson Hellaby at their Auckland Site wanted to better understand their energy use in different areas of the plant. Additionally, they were keen to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs at their site.
ESP installed electrical submetering followed by ongoing consultancy services to engage with the site. ESP consultants regularly engage with site for after-hours review, steering group meetings, building business cases, and carry out detailed analysis of sub systems.
In the last 4 years, the engagement has managed to achieve energy reductions of 11 million kWh equating to over $1 million. The site has not only reduced utility costs but also reduce maintenance costs.
The New Zealand Casings Company engaged ESP to establish their carbon footprint as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability. The engagement included defining organisational boundaries, collecting scope 1,2,and 3 emission data and analysing it to build the carbon baseline. NZ Casings is also progressing with scope 2 emission reduction initiatives, with ESP monitoring the site’s hot water usage to baseline performance prior to an investigation of alternative carbon friendly ways to generate hot water. The New Zealand Casing company continue their effort to reduce their carbon footprint as they set out to make the best sausage casing in the world.
WineWorks had set goals to improve their sustainability profile, but without timely visibility of electricity, LPG and water consumption at their Marlborough plant, the team was struggling to meaningfully improve their operational performance and reduce their Scope 2 emissions. You can’t manage what you don’t measure.
ESP completed a Type 2 energy audit and installed targeted electricity metering, supported by EECA funding. The analysis identified a range of efficiency opportunities including:
- compressed air,
- nitrogen and,
- after-hours usage.
The team also implemented detailed utility monitoring software, which identified how production usage and other factors impacted energy use. This allowed for the development of accurate, up-to-date business cases with clear cost/benefit analysis.
In the first 12 months, WineWorks reduced their expenditure in this arena by 5%, with 15% to 20% planned in the near future as a result of upgrades to the nitrogen and air compressors.
The audit also resulted in lighting replacement and the development of a preventative maintenance plans to check and fix air leaks for long-term efficiency.
Meanwhile, monitoring has provided the information needed to demonstrate to staff the benefits of improved shutdown procedures and the ability to continuously monitor impact.
Lastly, the new dashboard will allow energy efficiency to feature more strongly in manager and team leader objectives – sustainability integrated into business performance!
