Local Businesses Benefiting From Energy Assessments

Ecovantage, on behalf of the City of Port Phillip, is underway with energy assessment for businesses to reduce their energy cost and environmental impact.

This is a great initiative by the council which has started in Ripponlea and then moves to Albert Park and Elwood. The energy assessment will assist local businesses to become more involved in climate change issues while improving the efficiency and sustainability of their daily operations. The City of Port Phillip has displayed a strong commitment to climate change action through various applied activities while ambitiously pursuing the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and excessive water use within the community.

This ambition perfectly matches Ecovantage’s enthusiasm for action to reduce contribution to climate change, sustainability issues and the promotion of energy efficient solutions. Ecovantage is an energy efficiency services company providing services and products to decrease operating costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A qualified assessor from Ecovantage will visit the businesses, collect data and discuss energy consumption on site. The participating businesses will receive a tailor made report outlining where the business stands with its energy and water use and illustrating the level of carbon emission intensity of the businesses operations. The report will identify the most resource intensive areas of the business and provide recommendations on how to reduce running costs and improve the businesses energy and water efficiency. Ecovantage will also offer further support and advice to help businesses move forward with their own energy efficiency strategies by modifying activity and purchasing efficiency products through the ecovantage shop.
