Annual reports

REES electricity

  

The 2016 REES Annual Report has been prepared in accordance with the Commission’s reporting obligations under the Electricity and Gas Regulations and the Ministerial Protocol for REES. The report assesses the REES outcomes in 2016; in particular, achievement against the 2016 Ministerial targets for undertaking energy audits and energy efficiency activities in South Australian households and businesses.

The key 2016 outcomes were:

  • All energy audit and energy efficiency targets were met in 2016. Many obliged retailers have significant energy credits to carryover to subsequent REES years.
  •  A total of 5,797 energy audits were undertaken and obliged retailers applied an additional 5,215 energy audit credits (earned in prior years) to exceed the target by 94 percent.
  • 1,851,990 gigajoules (GJ) of energy savings were delivered,  which was 66 percent higher than that delivered in 2015. When prior year credits are included, the Energy Efficiency Target was exceeded by 40 percent. Many obliged retailers have significant credit balances to carry over towards 2017 targets.
  • 2016 was the second year that activities could be undertaken in businesses (referred to as commercial activities).  Seventy two percent of energy savings were from commercial activities; 69 percent from commercial lighting and three percent from commercial showerheads. In 2016, 3,315 businesses benefitted from REES activities.

A detailed REES Time Series Data (xls) is provided in a Excel based spreadsheet, covering performance data, which is designed to assist researchers and other persons with an interest in examining specific results and trends.
