Meander Valley Council was awarded Australian Government funding to implement energy efficiency measures at three of its highest energy consuming facilities in Tasmania: the Council offices in Westbury, the Visitor Information Centre and the Community Complex in Deloraine.
This project is highly visible local government project that will stimulate the community uptake of energy efficient options. State of the art LED street lighting and activities of the expert Education Officer will bring energy efficiency to the forefront of residents minds.
The Frankston City Council was awarded Australian Government to improve the energy efficiency of staff accommodation through a range of energy efficiency actions including lightings, HVAC optimization, thermal capacity and appliances. The building was selected due to its high energy use and to gain economies of scale by reducing project management costs. Tying the energy efficiency works into existing plans and pooling resources prevented the need to re-visit completed works to then make them energy efficient in the future.
This project proposes to undertake energy efficiency retrofits at three Council facilities. The three locations include the Splashdown Leisure Facility, the Waterworld Leisure Facility and the National Wool Museum. This includes lighting upgrade, upgrade of pool equipment, hot water, heating, ventilation and air conditioning optimisation and boiler replacement.

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder received Australian Government funding to design and construct a Geothermal Heating System and a Solar Thermal system in the Goldfields Oasis Leisure Centre, in the Goldfields region of Western Australia. In addition to these two systems, although not funded by the Australian Government, a Solar PV system was also installed to reduce the electrical energy requirement to run the Geothermal heating system.
The South West Sustainability Partnership was awarded Australian Government funding to retrofit 7,059 old street lights with LEDs, T5 and compact fluorescent street lights in the Victorian shires of Colac Otway, Corangamite, Moyne, Southern Grampians, Glenelg and the City of Warrnambool.
