Invest in your energy future
We live in a world where we are dependent on electricity to effectively operate in the work place and at home and are exposed to annual increases in the cost of power, impacting on the operational costs of business and the dispensable income of households.
Net Zero Energy Solutions are involved in the business of delivering energy efficiency improvements to buildings providing turn key solutions for our clients looking to reduce their energy consumption
"Using less energy to achieve the same or an improved outcome just makes sense and pays dividends"
PLAN FOR SUCCESS
Having a plan in place to improve on the major energy consumers in your buildings is a starting point to making improvements and realising the benefits of lower energy use. Net Zero Energy Solutions will assist in the process of identifying and prioritising those areas of your business where energy improvements can be made and will present turnkey solutions to achieve the identified goals
Reduce Consumption with control technology: Control technology enables the optimisation of an energy efficient operation
Energy Efficient Lighting will illuminate a space while using less energy than an ordinary lamp such as a fluorescent, mercury halide or sodium bulb. Significant efficiency gains can be accomplished through a mix options such as optimising use of daylight, through incorporating high efficiency lights, investing in task lighting.
Energy efficient HVAC ( Heating, ventilation, air-conditioning) provides comfort and air quality to a space while using less energy and maintaining comfort and industry standards. Efficiency gains start with the design and selection of equipment that is recognised for low energy/high output ratio's, utilisation of engineered mechanical componentry that will optimise performance, working with trade professionals that ensure quality installation and incorporating maintenance for the life of a system to keep things in tune.
Thermal Stratification describes the condition of warmer air rising to the ceiling in a building with the cooler air falling to the floor and is recognised as the single biggest waste of energy in buildings today while presenting opportunities for significant savings in energy consumption.
Thermal De-stratification is the process of equalising the air temperatures within an interior space and eliminating temperature variations to create a more uniform temperature from the floor to ceiling. The process involves the incorporation of engineered fan solutions designed to de-stratify the air with the resulting equalisation of air temperature making the best use of the heating and cooling supplied.

ELECTRIC MOTOR EFFICIENCY
Motors are used everywhere. Roughly one third of the world's electrical energy is used by AC electric motors, fixed speed centrifugal pumps, fan and compressor applications, where energy costs typically exceed initial motor purchase costs within a year of continuous operation
Traditionally fans and pumps have used constant speed drive motors that operate at a fixed speed and can only be switched on or off.
Variable speed drives are designed to reduce wasted energy by precisely matching motor speed with load demand and in turn reduce power usage, mechanical stress, wear and tear
Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) are on of the most cost effective ways to maximise motor efficiency and reduce operations costs.
Net Zero Energy Solutions are proud to partner with Future Wave International in delivering industry leading VFD technology to the New Zealand market

Reduce energy consumption with control technology: Control technology enables the optimisation of an energy efficient operation where programmed automation ensures operation coincides with demand use
Whatever the Industry or application, FW’s Solutions are designed to reduce wasted energy by precisely matching motor speed with load demand, and to dramatically cut power usage. Variable Frequency operations naturally reduce mechanical stress and motor wear & tear, thereby typically requiring less maintenance, and prolonging system life. VFDs are one of the most cost-effective ways to maximize efficiency and reduce operational costs, and these savings are immediately realized, going straight to your bottom line.
Whether you have a new or existing facility and are looking to manage your energy consumption contact us to investigate what solutions will best meet your current and future needs.
"The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency."
