ENERGY MANAGEMENT - Muswellbrook District Workers Club

When the Muswellbrook District Workers Club (MDWC) wanted to become more energy efficient while maintaining a high standard of comfort for its members and guests, Veolia had the solution to match.

The MDWC is a major recreation centre for communities of the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. The club supports local charities, sporting and community groups, and provides meeting and function rooms for major events.

In 2015, the MDWC awarded Veolia an Energy Performance Contract (EPC), consisting of a comprehensive energy upgrade to its facilities, to reduce environmental impacts, and enhance comfort for its patrons.

EPC including HVAC upgrade, Solar PV and LED lighting

332 tonnes reduction in GHG emissions per year

Guaranteed energy reduction of 209,000kWh per year

Veolia’s customised solution included an upgrade to energy assets, including the installation of a solar photovoltaic system, efficiency upgrades to the HVAC system, replacement of the diesel fired hot water boiler with a more efficient LPG boiler, full lighting upgrade with LED lamps, and a new building management control system to further improve environmental conditions for patrons, and reduce energy consumption.

The solution reduced operating costs, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions – saving the club thousands in energy bills.
