Energy Efficiency Upgrades (Design and Construct)

Since being engaged by Westpac in 2015, Autonomous Energy has delivered comprehensive energy efficiency upgrades in seven commercial buildings, and over 150 retail banking sites across Australia. These projects involved the upgrade of over 24,000 light fittings and resulted in 4,521MWh of annual energy savings as well as improving the aesthetics of the facilities. These projects will save approximately $1.1 million on electricity costs, and $117,000 on maintenance costs. On average, the payback period for their capital investment is 4 years.

Autonomous Energy solution

  • Detailed energy audits were carried out at over 150 retail banking sites and seven commercial buildings across Australia by Autonomous Energy’s experienced energy efficiency engineers.
  • Carefully engineered and optimised lighting systems were designed to maximise energy savings whilst meeting the comprehensive design requirements of Westpac and the relevant Australian Standards.
  • All electrical work conducted outside of business hours to avoid disruption in strict accordance with Westpac’s security procedures.
  • Controls of lighting system (dimmers, timers and switches) improved for better usability and with the area use in mind.
  • Over 24,000 new LED luminaires by were installed to deliver tailored lighting upgrade solutions.
  • Autonomous Energy managed the creation of both Energy Savings Certificates and Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates for all eligible projects. 

What Westpac says

Autonomous Energy worked closely with Westpac to refine the safety management plan and tailor all safety policies and procedures to ensure the project delivered provided safe outcomes to all and adhered to Westpac’s WH&S polices. We were satisfied with Autonomous Energy’s performance and I’m happy to recommend them as a company that can effectively operate WHS site management systems for large scale lighting upgrade projects.
