  • Canberra explores Asset Intensive Industries

    Canberra 22 March 2018The Canberra Chapter of the AMC held our 2018 AGM and a presentation on the evening of the 22nd March at Engineering House in Canberra.

    After a get together session over tea and coffee, it was down to business in the main auditorium. The presentation was about Asset Management Systems in Asset Intensive Industries, and with a total of 17 attendees from universities, defence, electricity distribution and consulting engineers, there was plenty of input from the audience, making for an interesting evening.

  • Darwin – Hot Town, Cool City

    Darwin Hot Town Cool CityThere’s no doubt about it, Darwin is one of Australia’s hottest cities. And by hot, we mean heat-affected, as well as a cool spot for tourists moving around and exploring the great outdoors. Hot cities mean hot assets, which means more energy is required to cool them, which means more carbon emissions, which means a worsening impact on our world. We need to cool down. And that’s the aim behind the Cavenagh Street heat mitigation trial.

  • Energy Efficiency and Asset Management

    Energy Efficiency and Asset Management

    The South Australian Government recently announced major plans and investment into reducing energy costs in government buildings.

    The $60 million commitment is expected to generate hundreds of local jobs, as tradies provide retrofits to existing building assets. Older buildings can get very hot in summer, yet by simply upgrading lighting and insulation, installing air-conditioning and adding sensors and energy management software programs, these government buildings can improve energy efficiency ratings, while also ensuring they are more comfortable and healthier places to work1.
