Autonomous Energy and consortium partners have designed and engineered a highly customised energy efficient lighting retrofit for ANZ Bank’s global Head Quarters at 100 Queen Street Melbourne. Each one of the over 6500 individual lighting fixtures were replaced with brand new custom designed luminaires so that each new luminaire not only saves energy though also integrates seamlessly with the buildings HVAC supply and return air reticulation system.
In early 2015 Autonomous Energy won a competitive tender process with Westpac to deliver turnkey energy efficiency projects in the banks retail portfolio. After a successful pilot program in a number of Victorian and South Australian branches, Autonomous Energy continues to work through 2016 with Westpac on a national rollout of turnkey energy efficiency projects across Westpac's retail branch portfolio. The energy efficiency upgrades for all branches consist primarily of the replacement of less efficient existing lighting equipment to highly efficient LED lighting technology, manufactured by the world’s leading lighting manufacturers. Detailed energy audits and site specific computational lighting designs are undertaken for each branch by Autonomous Energy's in-house energy efficiency engineers to maximise energy savings and to optimize the distribution of lights ensuring that Australian Standards for light levels (AS/NZS 1680) and Westpac’s standards are met post upgrade.
Autonomous Energy has been working with The Westin Sydney throughout 2012 and 2013 to design and supply state of the art energy efficient LED lighting in order to reduce the energy consumption of the hotel. Autonomous Energy has also unlocked the value of the Energy Saving Certificates that these energy efficiency upgrades at The Westin were eligible to generate.
Autonomous Energy has delivered a customised turnkey energy efficient lighting upgrade for ANZ Bank’s 347 Kent St Sydney location. This energy efficiency upgrade project covered all floors of the building and included every individual lighting fixture. Each pre-existing light fitting was replaced with brand new custom designed energy efficient luminaire. All installation work was conducted out of normal business hours so as not to disrupt the day to day professional activities of one of the world’s largest and most successful banking institutions.
In 2012 Autonomous Energy delivered a turnkey Energy Efficiency Upgrade for Johnson and Johnson Medical’s (JJM) Australian Head Quarters in North Ryde, Sydney. Autonomous Energy designed, supplied and installed a number of different LED lighting technologies to replace the less efficient incumbent lighting technology of the facility. Autonomous Energy also looked after the Energy Saving Certificates (ESCs) that were generated by virtue of this upgrade – ensuring JJM a fixed price for the value of the ESCs.
In 2014, Autonomous Energy completed a comprehensive energy efficiency upgrade of all lighting equipment in the car park and back of house areas at Ashfield Mall. Extensive software modelling was used by Autonomous Energy's engineering team during the design process to maximise energy savings and to optimize the distribution of light to ensure that the Australian Standards for light levels (AS/NZS 1680) will be met by the upgrade.
In 2011 Autonomous Energy conducted a detailed and comprehensive level 2 Energy Audit for City Tattersalls Club (CTC), in the heart of Sydney's CBD. City Tattersalls Club facilities are complicated and comprise 4 buildings, integrated over time, functional spaces vary widely and include:
"It is great working Autonomous Energy to improve sustainability at Claremont College. They are thorough, reliable and went out of their way to help, even making the time to address staff, parents and students at a school assembly."
Principal, Claremont College
Autonomous Energy completed a Level 3 Energy Audit for Mittagong RSL Club which identified 35.4% energy savings through specific technological upgrades to existing HVAC, lighting, refrigeration and electrical systems at the Club. A level 3 Energy Audit is the most detailed and accurate level of Energy Audit available.
Autonomous Energy completed a whole campus energy efficient lighting upgrade for Green Point Christian College in NSW.
