Australia Case Study 2

Country: Australia

Industry: Aged Care

Service: Bill Process & Audit, Energy Procurement, CO2 Emissions Analysis, Tariff Analysis and Budgeting

Client: A large company operating over fifty convalescent facilities throughout Australia engaged NUS Consulting to manage their energy portfolio.

Result: NUS achieved a number of savings totaling in excess of $500,000 per annum.

Summary: NUS Consulting provided this client with expertise and the tools necessary to secure a more cost effective tariff, implement an advantageous sourcing strategy, track CO2 emissions and develop an energy budget. NUS’s initial analysis of the client’s network tariffs revealed that the client was not enrolled in the most cost effective rate. By applying the appropriate tariff, NUS Consulting achieved a savings in excess of $80,000 for the client. With regards to procurement, NUS suggested that the client enter into a series of short term electricity contracts. As a result, the client was able to take advantage of declining energy prices: pricing on the client’s most recent contract was 30 percent lower than the price they were paying at the onset of engaging NUS Consulting.
