RATIONALE FOR INDICATOR SELECTION
Effective monitoring of electricity consumption at the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) provides tangible evidence of appropriate energy management and the achievment of targets under the Commonwealth Government's energy scheme.
To allow more effective management of electricity, historical data will be used in calculating maximum demand set-points based on seasonal influences.
Maintaining these records provides a database for submitting information to the Whole of Government Energy Reporting (WOGER), an annual requirement for all federal government divisions.
DESIGN AND STRATEGY FOR INDICATOR MONITORING PROGRAM
Site: The Australian Antarctic Division, Kingston Tasmania.
Frequency: Annual report.
Quarterly reports for assessing performance over the quarter.
Measurement Technique: Data are compiled from the monthly electricity accounts.
