MSAENV472B Implement and Monitor Environmentally Sustainable Work Practices Neale Farmer – Coordinator Major Environmental Initiatives – Hunter TAFE Session 3: Wednesday 4 June 2014
Review of last two (2) sessions Defined Sustainability Described the Unit – MSAENV472B Environmental Compliance and Sustainability at Hunter TAFE Theory on tools to identify, plan, implement and monitor Case study and activities to practice
Today’s Session Recap (5 mins) A couple of case studies related to Hunter TAFE Campuses incl. Water, Electricity, Supply Chain (15 mins) Activity on E block (20mins) Wrap up (5 mins)
Where to from here? 4
Your stories please – last 2 weeks? – 1. ….. Identifying areas for improvement in environmental performance? – 2. …..Developing plans to make improvements? – 3. ……Implementing and monitoring improvements in environmental performance? Tools, techniques and processes for:
-Identify and research area/s for improvement, consult, measure baseline. -Set goals, targets, objectives -Implement the improvement -Monitor implementation and results -Revise or adjust plan -etc Continuous Improvement Cycle
The Waste Hierarchy
Newcastle Campus Water – Annual and Monthly Data YearWater Usage kL Water Cost $ ,884$69, ,893$69, ,418$82, ,653$109,763
Electricity Use by Campus Gross Floor Area (m2) kWh
Electricity Use (kWh) / Student Training Hours 2010 kWh
Level 2 Energy Audit of Basden Precinct
Electricity Consumption (kWh) all campuses in the 8 days from Christmas Day to New Year’s Day (2011 to present) YearElectricity Consumption (kWh) % change from previous year 2011/12130, /13123,5575.3%reduction 2013/14113,9927.7%reduction How much electricity does Santa Claus use?
Energy Management Actions to Date Level 2 Energy Audit – Basden Precinct Newcastle Campus – “payback analysis” Real time monitoring and reporting of electricity use Replacement of T12 fluoro’s with LEDs Timers and automatic shut-downs for lighting, air conditioning, and other equipment Renewable energy and energy efficient technology Education and behaviour change incl. media, activities, and green teams
Which 500L Refrigerator? Sub-ZeroWestinghouse Shop price$1000$800
Which 500L Refrigerator? Sub-ZeroWestinghouse Shop price$1000$800 Sub-ZeroWestinghouse Running Cost (10yrs)$614$984 The Sub-Zero model is $370 cheaper to run over 10years (that’s $37/year) But the Sub-Zero costs $200 more! Using basic payback analysis it would take $200/$37 = 5.4 years to “pay back” the extra money spent on the Sub-Zero What other factors affect this purchase?
“Sustainability Loads and Opportunities in E Block Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) Fume cupboards / extraction fans Lighting Refrigeration Ice machine Water purification Water baths, incubators Muffle furnaces Power supplies Instrumentation IT equipment including peripherals AV equipment Maintenance and cleaning ?
Finding Ways to Minimise Resource Use What Resources? Land Buildings Plant and Machinery Raw Materials Labour 24 How to measure? How to reduce consumption and/or cut waste? How do you know you’ve made a difference?
Activity – Worksheet – E Block groups select a room nearby to consider for this exercise eg. classroom, lab, office 2.Identify activities carried out, resources used, how they’re measured and how to implement and measure improved practices 25
Some considerations? Engineering controls / new technology Operational controls Administrative controls Supply chain management Staff engagement Monitoring and reporting
Recap on Final Session (4 June) Consider sustainability – Triple Bottom Line and beyond If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it It’s a journey – but you need to have a vision, strategies, actions and resources to make it happen Start thinking holistically eg. product life cycle, payback or return on investment etc Be prepared to ask lots of questions and do some simple maths. It starts and ends with you
