In a recent paper,
Jonathan Jutsen, Chairman of the Australian Alliance for Energy Productivity,
highlighted how energy productivity is central to the total value created by
the energy deployed, not just the increased energy
efficiency of equipment utilised. By using energy more productively businesses
can make sure they are making the energy supply work for them.
Sales of electric vehicles are on the rise and demand in SA is expected
to grow. But without the necessary supply and distribution infrastructure for
green transport fuels in place, consumers will be reluctant to buy green
vehicles, while without adequate consumer demand there is little incentive to
invest in a local supply and distribution infrastructure.
Alex von Braun in a recent
paper, “How to measure energy productivity”, highlighted the importance of new
technology that allows for more accurate measurement of energy
productivity. This allows for granular
examination of operational integrity, while wireless, self-powered sensors are
designed for easy installation and execution.
