Summary

This case studies highlights the energy savings opportunities from audits at a number of pork farms. It highlights potential to reduce lighting energy by 66%, and reducing overall energy by up to 27% with the addition of Solar PV. Additional benefits include total greenhouse gas emission reductions of 35.8 t CO2-e per year.

Farm Profile

Energy audits were completed for several piggeries in Southern Queensland where common energy saving opportunities identified included lighting upgrade and solar PV installation. Currently many of the sheds at each site are lit by fluorescent tube or metal halide high bay lighting with lighting accounting for between 1% and 8% of total energy consumption at each site.
