Monthly Electricity Usage at Australian Antarctic Division KingstonEntry ID: SOE_Elec_Kingston
Abstract: This indicator is no longer maintained, and is considered OBSOLETE.
Records the quantity of electricity, measured in kWh, used in operating the Australian Antarctic Division site and associated facilites including Macquarie 4 Cargo Facility; Mertonvale Circuit Warehouse and Sandfly Warehouse.
TYPE OF INDICATOR
There are three types of indicators:
1.Describes the CONDITION of ... important elements of a system;
2.Show the extent of the major PRESSURES exerted on a system;
3.Determine RESPONSES to either condition or changes in the condition of a system.
This indicator is one of: PRESSURE
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.

Quality This indicator is now OBSOLETE. These data are no longer archived in this location, and are therefore not up-to-date.
Electricity meter readings are taken by Aurora Energy personnel on monthly basis for the whole site. The quality of these readings is determined by Aurora specifications. Readings will be based on individual buildings after the refurbishment program.
Data ... are used to report on annual figures to ascertain the performance of the AAD against Commonwealth Government's energy targets.
Historical data will be used to calculate average maximum demand set-points for controlling electricity consumption on a seasonal basis.
If positive or negative changes in electricity consumption are detected, steps are taken to ensure the cause of this change are identified. The cause of the change may be due to improvements in energy efficiency, additions to buildings, building or maintenance faults etc.
