How large energy users are minimising cost (and Greenhouse gas emissions)
February 20, 2008 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In conjunction with the Hunter Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) Group and the Australian Institute of Energy, we are holding a joint seminar on energy efficiency for greenhouse gas emission management.
Supported by the Commonwealth Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism (DRET), the Hunter EEO Group has arranged for a senior DRET program manager to talk to us. She and industry reps will talk about the opportunities and case studies providing impetus for action by businesses through examples of financial and other savings which result from better internal energy management.
The NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change has also agreed to provide a speaker to explain how their Sustainability Advantage program can reduce greenhouse gas emissions for both large and small business.
This will be an ideal opportunity for members to bring their manager or CEO along to hear from senior Commonwealth and State Government representatives, and an industry representative from Orica Australia, providing specific NSW and local case studies.
The DRET speaker will also discuss how the EEO program compares to other mandatory programs such as the NSW DECC Energy Savings Action Plan and voluntary programs such as the AGO Greenhouse Challenge and the NSW DECC Sustainability Advantage program.
The speakers are:
- Louise Vickery, Manager Energy Efficiency Opportunities Program, DRET
- David Holmes, Senior Project Officer, Business Partnerships Section, NSW DECC
- Sherree Woodroffe, Environment Manager – Kooragang Island, Orica Australia
