Energy Efficiency Upgrades (Design and Construct)

Ashfield Mall is a convenience retail Shopping Centre located right in the heart of Ashfield, approximately 8km from Sydney CBD. With major anchor tenants including supermarkets, convenience retail and a food court the centre has a high reliance on energy and identified the opportunity for reduction in costs throughout the centre.
 
Autonomous Energy completed a comprehensive energy efficiency upgrade of all lighting equipment in the car park and back of house areas at Ashfield Mall. The energy efficiency upgrade achieves the aims of Shopping Centre Management to greatly reduce energy consumption, improve the light distribution in all areas and improve the sustainability of the shopping centre.
 

Autonomous Energy solution

  • Our engineers modelled lighting in all areas of the centre to maximise energy savings while meeting the Australian standards for lighting
  • All fluorescent tubes were replaced with the latest generation of Philips LED tubes.
  • Additional lighting was installed near car park ramps and entry ways to improve the visibility in the car park as cars drive in.
  • All emergency lights were removed and cadmium containing batteries were carefully recycled to minimise the harmful effects on the environment. These lights were replaced with Australian Standards compliant, cadmium-free, emergency LED luminaires with in-built sensors.
  • Over 1000 individual LED luminaires and lamps were used in this energy efficiency retrofit project to produce annual energy savings in excess of 250,000 kWh (equivalent to approximately $45,000 energy cost savings p.a.). The payback period is 1 year.
