With the days growing shorter, and the temperature getting cooler, it’s not uncommon to try to think of ways to heat your home. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics Household Expenditure Survey 2009-10 (cat. no. 6530.0) adjusted for CPI, […]Read More
Can you have completely renewable electricity that produces no greenhouse gas emissions?
Energy Efficiency isn’t just in our name, it’s what we strive for. We’d like to show you that going “green” is not only an achievable goal, but in many […]
This article is the final instalment of a three-part series examining elemental trading in a Verification Method (JV3) Thermal simulation. The series discusses the effects that solar absorptance, insulation and thermal mass have on the performance of the building envelope. […]Read More

Refrigerated Walk-In Coldrooms (WICs) are applied in a wide range of facilities as part of the delivery stream from food source to consumer. However, WICs aren’t regulated for minimum energy efficiency performance, making them difficult to assess. WICs can be […]Read More
At Anderson Energy Efficiency, we like to explore the limits. Having an Electric Car is great, but one of our employees thought he could make something even more efficient. A self-balancing, electric Unicycle!
It’s like a Segway, but with only one […]Read More
The first step to answering this question is to ask another question: what exactly is included in your building envelope? But the answer is more complicated than you might first think. Correctly or incorrectly defining the building envelope can significantly […]Read More
Energy efficiency assessments can be performed in several different ways – each with their own strengths & weaknesses. Firstly, there is the Deemed-To-Satisfy (DTS) Energy Efficiency Building Solution. To achieve compliance through a DTS assessment, all separate elements of the […]Read More
In hotter climates, ceiling fans can provide a big increase in a building’s energy efficiency rating. But how does the National Construction Code (NCC) & National House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) Software calculate their exact benefit? Time to get technical!
