Its encouraging to see the latest Carbon Emissions Index compiled by Pitt & Sherry and published in WME magazine, show a continuation in the decline of both electricity demand and emissions through July. Annualised demand has dropped in the year to end of July 2013 by a further 2.2% and emissions by 6.3%.
The report discusses the contribution of photo voltaics which has increased an impressive 1.3 TWh in 2012/13 which is fantastic. The contribution of energy efficiency through a reduction in energy intensity is not as well documented but must be significant. The state energy efficiency schemes certainly play an important part in this and Ecovantage is proud to be involved in NSW, Vic and SA.
