The NSW Innovate grant is in the "energy services and technologies" category, sponsored by Department of Industry, Skills and Regional Development
Expanding into Water Analytics
Excessive water consumption in residential strata buildings is another compelling problem. Following capture of 6 weeks of logger data and input from Sydney Water
, we have now integrated water analytics into our sustainability reports. This will assist strata buildings in reducing their water consumption by up to 25% and reducing their strata levies by up to 17%.
