HFM representatives in EnergyLab's panel sessions in WA & QLD

HFM was recently invited to join EnergyLab’s panel sessions in Queensland and Western Australia.

The main question addressed during these two events was “How can building automation benefit both occupants and the electricity grid?”

Western Australia

The panellists were:

  • Beth Morris, Engineering Consultant, HFM Asset Management.
  • Brett Savill, CEO, Quantify Technology.

The takeaway message of both events was that automation can help buildings improve their energy efficiency

Clean energy

EnergyLab is doing a great job promoting clean energy which is a key component to achieve Australia’s net-zero emissions goal by 2030.

At HFM, our engineers are continuously developing cost-effective solutions  for a better future. However, it’s important to remember that renewable energy is not the only solution when it comes to saving energy.

Typically, before installing renewable systems at any site HFM would recommend conducting an energy audit to identify energy efficiency opportunities, as there is no point using the electricity that a brand-new solar PV system produces for purposes that could have been completely avoided.

An on-site inspection coupled with analysis of your sites’ historical performance will enable HFM to provide you with a prioritised list of action items to improve performance and reduce costs. This will include an initial assessment of whether solar PV is a viable option for your site.

Congratulations to EnergyLab for putting together these successful events and for their ongoing efforts to promote clean energy.

EnergyLab is an Australian platform that provides support to launch and grow new energy businesses, they run events regularly and have a vision of “a world powered by 100% clean energy”.

HFM is proud to support events like these and share knowledge across our industry.
