Energy Cost Saver
For the Australian Red Meat Industry
Welcome to the Australian red meat industry’s energy cost saving tool. This tool will expedite the cost benefit analysis of proven, viable technologies and increase adoption to save on your energy costs, improve energy security, and reduce emissions.
This tool is free for everyone to use once you register – if you submit details for a project suitable for equipment financing or specific equipment, you may receive further information on some options available to you.
After you have logged in with your name and email address, select your facility type above to get started.
Once you have registered, you will be able to use the Producer, Feedlot and Processor modules by clicking the link in the banner at the top.
The producer modules will help you design a solar PV and battery, or electric vehicle solution to transition your pumping power to 100% renewable energy, and greatly reduce your diesel costs. This will save you money, protect against future fuel price increases, and reduce emissions on your farm, improving local air quality.
The feedlot modules will help you design solar PV, Li-ion, and biomass boiler solutions for your feedlot. This has potential to transition all power and thermal fuel usage to renewable, saving money, reducing emissions, improve air quality, and secure your energy supply.
The processor modules will help you design a biogas reciprocating engine for your CAL that is currently flaring gas, a biomass boiler, or solar PV. This will greatly save on power costs, and transition to cheaper, cleaner, green steam. Energy from waste and biomass will also improve energy supply security and reduce emissions.
