Inaburra School is a leading Christian school located in Bangor in southern Sydney. Throughout 2018 and into 2019 Autonomous Energy has worked closely with Inaburra School to carry out a comprehensive Energy Efficiency upgrade. This comprehensive project involved an LED Lighting Upgrade - completed in July - along with the installation of an Energy Submetering and Visualisation system - which was completed in early January 2019.

Autonomous Energy first worked with Inaburra School in 2014 when we designed and installed a 95kW Solar PV System. The system was expanded in mid 2018, when an additional 195kW system was installed. To learn more about the Solar PV System, please click here.

A combination of quality components, leading brand equipment and technical expertise mean that Inaburra School now reaps the rewards of various custom-designed energy efficiency measures - and will do so for decades to come.

Autonomous Energy solution

LED Lighting Upgrade (July 2018)

  • Autonomous Energy carried out an LED lighting upgrade trial for three classrooms in order to demonstrate the improved lighting conditions and energy savings that a full LED upgrade would deliver.
  • Following this, Autonomous Energy scoped and designed a comprehensive whole school LED lighting upgrade. This accepted design involved replacing internal and external outdated incumbent fluorescent technologies with high quality LED luminaires.
  • The implementation resulted in energy savings and improved lighting performance for all learning spaces.
  • The current draw - before and after the implementation - was recorded in order to measure and verify energy savings achieved by the upgrade.

Energy Submetering and Visualisation System (January 2019)

  • In conjunction with the solar PV system and LED lighting install, Autonomous Energy scoped and provided an Energy Submetering and Visualisation System.
  • A SimbleSense cloud-based energy and analytics platform was provided, which enables real-time information and monitoring of energy data. This platform allows the school to glean a clear understanding of the nature of their energy consumption, as well as generation via the solar PV system.
  • Submeters were judiciously installed in electrical distribution boards throughout the school. These submeters communicate wirelessly in real-time with the SimbleSense platform and relay energy consumption and production data which is collated and clearly presented via the SimbleSense dashboard.
  • The Submetering System delivers the following:
    • Accurate, real-time monitoring of energy consumption
    • The ability to obtain real time energy usage
    • The ability to identify and eliminate wasted energy
    • Accumulation and review of energy data - which allows for comparison of usage over time
    • Allows Site Managers to be better informed - enabling them to make decisions that help optimise system performance
    • Allows early knowledge of maintenance issues for repair before critical equipment fails
