Case study: Energy Efficiency through Innovation

Veolia has partnered with The University of the Sunshine Coast to implement the first plant in Australia to use renewables to charge a thermal battery. The project ensures a 40 percent reduction in the campus’ grid electricity use and results in an estimated $100 million saving over the 25-year life of the project. It is expected to save more than 100,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions. The University also uses campus lake water for the air conditioning cooling towers saving 802 megalitres of potable water.
