Why Commercial Building Upgrades / energy efficiency upgrades makes sense: If you own or manage a large commercial building, it literally pays to be energy efficient and improve its NABERS rating.

Energy efficiency in commercial buildings results from a considered and holistic approach to energy conservation measures (ECMs) and water conservation measures (WCMs). This can be achieved by engaging a specialist energy and water efficiency provider with engineering expertise and experience in implementing commercial building upgrades or energy efficiency upgrades in commercial buildings. 

There are many types of energy conservation measures that can be undertaken to significantly improve the operational efficiency and environmental sustainability of a commercial building. There are typically a mix of energy conservation measures implemented as part of a commercial building upgrade project.

Some of the energy conservation measures may include: LED Lighting, heating and cooling systems including boiler and chiller system upgrades; building sealing / insulation, voltage power optimisation, embedded or distributed energy generation such as Solar PV, geothermal, co-generation and tri-generation systems; variable speed drives, motors, controls, sensors, energy savings modules,  water treatment and pumping systems, and so on.

The benefits of energy savings projects – when properly designed by a performance based energy efficiency provider – typically outweigh the capital investment and costs of energy efficiency in commercial buildings.
