I wanted to send you a thank you for your patience and tolerance of our journey into steam heating. To put it simply, we just wouldn't be where we are without your help, so thank you again!
Anthony Baldwin | CEO - Baldwin Distilling
I was pleasantly surprised with the level of detail and service provided by your team during the whole process from the design to the onsite commissioning on the cogenunit. They show nothing but complete professionalism for the project.. As a result I spent very few hours looking after your team on site and during the install, this only means in my mind, that the whole team work as one, to achieve the great end result. Thank you again.

As the facilities manager for three clubs, time is precious, so I wanted a company that would come in and do a turnkey job so that I wouldn't have to worry about it. Simons Green Energy had done one project for us and they proved to be fantastic at what they do, so when the Club was ready to undertake the Trigeneration project, we had no hesitation in commissioning Simons to do this. We have no hesitation in recommending Simons Green Energy.

Simons Green energy (SGE) was engaged to assess the abattoir for suitability for a large cogeneration system including a biogas capture, processing and mixing facility. SGE was subsequently appointed the project and is currently installing the system. We are currently installing the system and are expecting the system to come online late November 2019.
The system involves two SGE-42HM 1000kW Siemens cogeneration units set to deliver power and heat to the abattoir. SGE have also covered three of the existing anaerobic lagoons (to capture the methane generated) and have installed gas processing equipment, a flare and biogas mixing system for the cogeneration systems.
The Cogeneration systems have a maximum output of 2000kW and 1900kW of heat. The biogas system have a predicted maximum biogas generation of approximately 80m3/hr, and will provide a portion of the gas required for the generation. The system will generate over the operating hours of the facility and is predicted to effectively reduce emissions of the plant, its electricity and heat generation, and waste management by approximately 15,000 Tonnes per year, which is equivalent to taking over 3,000 cars off the road per year. The system also has a very positive financial benefit, it is set to pay itself back in approximately 3 years.
The largest pool complex built in Sydney since the 2000 Olympics will be heated by our Cogeneration system.
Inspired by Sydney’s famous ocean swimming spots, the City of Sydney’s new Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre will offer great swimming experiences.
From children playing and friends taking a dip to serious swimmers improving lap times – there will be something for everyone.
There will also be plenty of outdoor space to relax and play in, including a playground and picnic facilities, a fitness training circuit and a 4,950sqm multipurpose sports field.

We have designed an innovative energy cogeneration system to heat and power the centre designed and supplied by Simons Green Energy. It will give us flexibility in managing energy consumption and help us reduce our carbon footprint. It will also make the centre significantly cheaper to run every year.
A large array of solar panels on the roof of the centre will connect to the City’s local electricity network in the Green Infrastructure Centre in Joynton Avenue.
Government commits to $67 million investment into energy efficiency to cut costs and emissions
The Federal Government committed $67 million to energy efficiency measures for homes, commercial buildings, equipment and appliances, businesses and community organisations.
These measures will help businesses and households reduce their energy costs, while also reducing Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. The plan includes
$50 million for the Energy Efficient Communities Program;$7.1 million to improve the energy and emissions performance of commercial buildings;
$3.4 million to accelerate energy performance of residential buildings; and
$6.5 million to introduce equipment energy efficiency labelling requirements for space heating.
The Energy Efficient Communities Program will help eligible businesses and community organisations save energy by installing new equipment or improving their energy management. Funding will be available to upgrade equipment, invest in energy monitoring systems, and conduct energy system assessments or feasibility studies.
The Government’s investment will also provide the initial funds for the Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings – a national plan to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions from Australia’s residential and commercial buildings sector.
The investment for commercial buildings will include expanding the National Australian Built Environment Energy Ratings System (NABERS) and possibly the Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) program. NABERS will expand its voluntary rating tools to include more building types, such as schools, retail stores and industrial buildings.
Funding for residential buildings will provide best-practice information, training and tools to help homes transition to a zero-energy future. This will include updates to the ‘Your Home’ online resources, and expanding the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme tools.
An energy rating label for space heating appliances will allow consumers to compare between different heating technologies and make more informed choices. Space heating accounts for 26% of residential energy use. Read more
