Gatton Piggery

A South-East piggery has saved money and reduced energy consumption after implementing the recommendations from a recent Energy Savers Audit. This case study focuses on the irrigation system, with a recommendation to replace a low-pressure irrigation system without boom, which allows the farm to reduce 2% of its total energy consumption.

Southern Queensland Meat Processors

The audits of several meat processors identified a payback of between 3.2 and 4.9 years of adding CO2 heat pumps to replace gas hot water systems. In one case a mixing valve was recommended to one system that was providing higher temperature to return a payback of 1.4 years. Additional benefits include greenhouse gas emission reductions of 283.5 t CO2-e.
