As business owners, you’ll understand how important it is to be efficient and effective in all aspects of your business operations. Energy consumption is an increasingly significant expense and reducing it will not only benefit your bottom line but also helps reduce your business’s carbon footprint.
An energy audit will give your business a useful resource for identifying, quantifying, and cost-justifying energy-saving initiatives. You’ll find out what the quick wins are, what’s worth doing in the next few years, and what should be on the longer-term plan. We’ll even tell you if there is any grant funding available to assist with any recommended upgrades.
Our range of Energy Audit services is tailored to suit your business requirements. Depending on your needs, we can recommend the most appropriate audit to meet your goals and identify which actions to take for the best return on your investment.
Choose from a range of energy audits, ranging from basic to comprehensive.
Our reporting for Type 1, 2 and 3 Audits complies with Australian Standard AS/NZ 3598:2014 (Energy Audit Standards).
A Type 2 Audit is more detailed and involves an onsite visit, access to interval metering data and at least 12 months of energy billing data. You’ll receive a detailed analysis of your energy usage and tariffs (including any demand charges), a review of the key onsite appliances, and recommendations on succession planning for the larger appliances. The report also identifies baseline energy use (what’s used when the site is closed), and active energy use (what’s used when the business is operating).
You’ll find out how much energy is being used by which key appliances, get cost-justified recommendations for identified energy efficiency opportunities, and know what order things should be done to get the best value for money. The recommendations will provide a prioritised list of recommendations including quick wins, what could be cost-justified over a few years, and what should be strategically planned for in the future. If any funding is available to assist with the implementation of any of the recommendations, that will also be included. The accuracy of figures is generally within approximately 10%.
The AS/NZS 3598:2014 is an updated Standard for energy audits in Australia and New Zealand to ensure it supports the delivery of high-quality, consistent energy audits that will help businesses make informed decisions on energy efficiency

At Stomping Ground, it’s really important to us to do our bit for the environment by minimising our footprint and maximising our sustainability initiatives. We engaged Green Moves to do a Type 2 energy audit on our brewery and beer hall in Collingwood to help us identify ways to reduce energy use, operating costs and other things we could do more sustainably. The end report was clear and simple to read, and identified practical and cost-effective actions we could reasonably take to reduce our energy use by 52%. We implemented a number of the recommendations immediately for some quick wins. Danielle King was our consultant and we found her highly professional and her communication throughout the process was excellent.
Green Moves Australia are great to work with, very professional and personable staff who go above and beyond to deliver excellent service to clients. We have had a great experience working with Green Moves and Danie has been so helpful right through from beginning to end including, scoping, auditing, reporting and ongoing monitoring.
