James Cook University has embarked on an ambitious energy management and efficiency program that has realised major cost and energy savings, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and significantly reduced peak demand at its Townsville Campus. The integrated approach includes the Central District Cooling system, the largest thermal energy storage tank in the Southern Hemisphere, a centrally controlled Building and Energy Management System, power factor correction and various other projects.
Over the past five years these projects, costing JCU over $25 million, have been implemented across the campus. The results include a peak demand reduction of 4.5MW (40%), a 25% reduction in total energy use, $2 million in savings annually and a reduction in CO2 emissions of 10,600 tonnes per annum.The innovation lends itself well to replication in a wide variety of situations. It can be scaled up and down and used wherever air-conditioning contributes a significant cost to an organisation.
