This policy is intended to increase the efficiency of compressed air systems in the New Zealand industry. Funding is provided for two levels of audits on large compressed air systems (>=75KW)
Auditors must be accredited Compressed Air Systems auditors (trained through a programme referred to in the capacity building section above). The walk-through audit is primarily aimed at identifying and quantifying the opportunity for savings on a site. Some specific recommendations will arise from this as well as an assessment of whether an in-depth audit is justified. Follow-ups are performed after 6 and 12 months to determine the level of savings achieved. The commercial programme is currently delivering annual savings of around 0.2 PJ a year; at a cost to Government of around 25% of the cost of building new supply assets.
