Annual reports

REES electricity

  

The 2015 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 2015; in particular, achievement against the 2015 Ministerial targets for undertaking energy audits and energy efficiency activities in South Australian households and businesses.

The key 2015 outcomes were:

  • all energy audit and energy efficiency targets were met in 2015. Many obliged retailers have significant energy credits to carryover to subsequent REES years.
  • A total of 8,692 energy audits were undertaken and obliged retailers applied an additional 1,679 energy audit credits (earned in prior years). Overall the 2015 target was exceeded by 83 percent.
  • 1,118,820 gigajoules (GJ) of energy savings were delivered in 2015. When prior year credits are included, the energy efficiency target was exceeded by 35 percent.
  • 2015 was the first year that activities could be undertaken in businesses (referred to as commercial activities). Thirty seven percent of energy savings in 2015 were from commercial activities; 17 percent from commercial lighting and 20 percent from commercial showerheads. In 2015, 1,284 businesses received 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.
