Energy Saving Initiatives 2013

RMIT University and NORTH Link have been providing energy cost saving projects for several years, using final year Bachelor or Engineering and Master of Engineering (Sustainable Energy) students. The completed student projects for 2012 were presented last November at RMIT, and featured substaintial achievements in cost reduction and energy efficiency. You are invited to take advantage of this innovative program to reduce costs and improve your carbon footprint.

In 2012, the companies that participated in the program were –

  • Armstrong Industries
  • BTI Logistics
  • Capral
  • Colonial First State
  • Continental Australia
  • Food Plastics
  • Melbourne Water
  • Nestle
  • Olex
  • PWB Anchor
  • William Adams

The program aims to:

  • reduce business costs, emissions and usage of electricity, gas, LPG, petrol, diesel and other energy
  • identify possibilities for use of re-newables such as solar, wind, biomass and other sources of energy

Students are required to complete the research as part of their final year assessment. They are closely supervised by their RMIT lecturer to ensure quality and that your needs are met.

A full and detailed assessment report is provided to firms on completion including recommendations for implementation.
