How O’Brien Energy Services can help you understand your energy consumption

Jun 26, 2023

Are you grappling with the start of your energy management journey? O'Brien Energy Services can help to guide you with tangible steps and resources.  

Are you unsure of where to commence your energy management journey? O’Brien Energy Services can offer some strategic steps that can guide you in the right direction.  

The Australian Federal Government is committed to reducing emissions by 43% of 2005 levels by 2030 and to achieving Net Zero Emissions status by 2050 (AOFM, 2022). The Industrial Process sector plays a pivotal role in meeting these goals. Furthermore, the cost of energy related to these emissions often constitutes one of the largest expenses within an organisation.  

But where does an organisation start to strategize the reduction of emissions and energy costs? With no clear standard or legislation in place, many organisations are left pondering where best to invest their resources, which can lead to inaction.  

Here’s where O’Brien Energy Services comes into play. Let’s begin with the saying, “you can’t manage what you don’t measure”. To understand where your energy is being consumed, you need to establish a baseline of energy usage and create a benchmark of your current position. Without this preliminary analysis, organisations risk venturing into energy improvements blindly.  

Starting with a comprehensive energy audit from a qualified professional can provide a big picture overview of energy usage, or a more detailed Sub System Audit focusing on major energy-consuming areas, such as steam or hot water systems.  

By combining an Energy Audit with metering and monitoring systems, we can help you manage your site’s energy consumption and quantify the benefits of energy improvement initiatives. Our advanced metering and monitoring system provides intricate details on appliance performance, energy use and its relationship to outputs, identifies system deficiencies or anomalies, and tracks the impact of any operational enhancements and capital upgrades.  

As recommended by the Energy Efficiency Council, start with the visible, aim for the quick wins, and utilise data to guide your decisions. Engage O’Brien Energy Services for tailored and relevant advice in the areas you’re seeking to improve.  

Although energy management might appear overwhelming at first, partnering with O’Brien Energy Services can simplify the process. By breaking down the task into smaller focus areas and addressing them one at a time, we can help you make significant strides in your energy management.
